TRYING TO PROTECT HEDGEHOGS IN OSCOTT
Ao many of us know a recent survey has indicated the decline in the numbers of the humble Hedgeog.
To try and combat this locally in Oscott along with the Friends of the Queslett Nature Reserve I am requesting the Planning department encourage developers to remember the hedge hog. They can for example ensure small gaps are left in fencing to allow Hedge Hogs to roam from garden to garden and they could even include Hedge Hogs Homes on the development sites.
I have also requested the Parks department to do what they can to help improve the lot of the Hedge Hoge. They to could help by leaving natural homes for hedge hog's in place fallen trees and so on.
Home owners can also do their bit by giving up a little space in their garden. hedgeHogs homes can be made or purchased as can hedge hogs feeding stations. Some additional food can be left out when using these feeders. Don't forget hedge Hogs need to roam so leave a small gap in your garden fence.
