It's that time of year again when summer has slowly come to an end. The colder, damper air draws in and the days become shorter. For some this may be upsetting that the hot sun and balmy evenings have disappeared, however for many of our local species autumn is the best time of year.
Natures larder is full to the brim with berries and insects, perfect for one of our favourite little prickly mammals. The hedgehog.
Hedgehogs are a native species in Jersey and the UK and have a lifespan of around 3-8 years.
