If you find a baby bird on the ground it is unlikely to have been abandoned and you could do more harm than good by ‘rescuing’ it. Please follow the advice on the RSPB website here


If you find a Hedgehog out in the daytime or an injured or sick one at night please contact Prickles Hedgehog Rescue Centre in Cheddar, 07806 744 772. They will send someone to collect it from you, nurse it back to health and return it. Please also send in reports of your sightings via the contact form on this website.
