Autumn juvenile hedgehogs are ones that are old enough to be away from their mothers but too small to hibernate. The autumn juvenile season can start as early as September and is busiest through until the end of November. However some will struggle on the occasional one can be found from December through until September
The creation of a wildlife garden, or a wildlife area in your garden, will attract a diversity of wild creatures and go some way toward redressing the balance of human interference with nature, which has destroyed so many habitats in the countryside. Also, by helping hedgehogs, birds, bats, frogs and toads to survive the winter and providing places for them to raise their young, you will be rewarded by their helping to keep garden pests under control..
If you find a hedgehog in need of help, these carers, whilst not representatives of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, may be able to offer advice and even take in the patient. Please remember these carers often work from home and do many voluntary hours so your consideration for their time is much appreciated
