30 Wild Marlow Days - Day 5

  • Radio-tracking studies have found that hedgehog home ranges vary during the year (and between sexes). On average, they are around 10—20 hectares in size. Hedgehogs can roam an average distance of 2km on a single night. Male hedgehogs in the breeding season can cover up to 3km in one night in their search of females.

    Here in Marlow, we are lucky to have the fantastic Marlow Hedgehog Hub sharing advice on how to help hedgehogs in your gardens and taking in injured or sick hedgehogs for rehabilitation, keep up the good work! Follow their facebook page and see how you can help them in your garden https://www.facebook.com/groups/237141446883502/
