How to create a hedgehog hole
Hedgehogs need to be able to roam far and wide in search of food, mates and nesting sites - the average hedgehog roams 2km a night! Get together with your neighbours to make a hole in your fence or dig a channel beneath garden boundaries to connect your gardens.
You will need:
A fence panel
Your neighbours' cooperation! Keep an eye out for neighbours doing work on their gardens, or using fencing contractors - this is the perfect opportunity to get a hedgehog hole put in and influence connectivity!
If your neighbour is happy, remove a fence panel.
Measure and mark a 13cm x 13cm hole at the bottom of the panel
Ask an adult to help you cut the hole using the coping saw
If there are very rough edges, use sandpaper to smooth them down
Put your fence panel back. Your hedgehog highway is now open for business!
