Filey hedgehog survey 2017

Are you a Filey area resident, or do you visit the area in the spring/summer/autumn? If so, we need your help! We’re conducting an area-wide Hedgehog survey this year in order to better understand their population and dynamics locally, and we’re relying on the sharp eyes and reporting of locals and visitors to make it as comprehensive as possible.

How can you help? It’s easy; just email your details of your sighting – date, exact location, state of the animal (fully grown, young, healthy, road casualty etc.) – to Mark at mpearson(at), and we’ll add it to our growing database. We’ll then collate all the records and publish our results here on the website and in the next Wildlife report, and will provide updates on our facebook page. Thanks in advance!
