Whilst out walking the dog, my wife and I came across a disturbed clutch of baby hedgehogs. One had already died and the remaining five were stone cold and close to death. I had no option but to stuff the prickly bunch down my jumper and run the mile or so home. After some hot water bottle treatment I managed to take a photo or two. They were about two or three weeks old and quite blind. We passed them on to a Hoggy rescue centre where they were nursed back to health and all survived.
