Woodpiles and Bonfires
Woodpiles are undoubtedly a useful way of keeping the garden tidy, but hedgehogs tend to hibernate in these piles, so please be extra vigilant. Ideally material collected to burn should be stacked away from the burner and only moved on the day of burning when the heap can be inspected prior to ignition. Bonfire night is especially dangerous with many bonfire heaps being created weeks before burning. The heap should be moved before burning to remove any sleeping hogs. You could surround the bonfire zone with an amphibian rescue fence (or equivalent fencing at least 12 inches high), pegged down before stacking the bonfire. This will deny access to hedgehogs and thus ensure that bonfire night is enjoyed without fear of harm.
