Pearl class hedgehog homes

Home » News » Pearl class hedgehog homes

Efficient winter nests are essential if hedgehogs are to survive hibernation. Thus, in autumn, they begin to collect leaves, grass, straw, bracken, reeds and use these materials for building their own nests under hedgerows, fallen logs or piles of brushwood. These nests are surprisingly waterproof and they can protect the hedgehog against the cold.
In our school grounds the children have discovered a hedgehog and they decided to make their own hedgehog shelters so that our resident hedgehog has a choice of accommodation for the winter. They made the entrance big enough for the hedgehog to enter but not so big that a predator might get in. They cleared the floor, covered the shelter to camouflage it and keep out the weather. They then went on a minibeast hunt to provide the hedgehog with tasty treats.
