Book your tunnel!

Hedgehog survey tunnelWe now have our survey tunnels and have collected together all the materials needed to start looking for hedgehogs. We have had lots of sightings of hedgehogs in the last few weeks – thanks if you have reported one yourself. And we are doing a trial run with 10 tunnels on some land near Silkstone Common (with the farmer’s permission, of course). We hope to see if there are any hiccups or things we need to change about our technique before we hand them over to you have a go with.


And so the time is right to start taking bookings from anyone who could put one in their garden or on their land. You can find out more about having a tunnel and sign up for one on our survey tunnels webpage.

    We have some little tunnels that have been dug by hedgehogs to create a corridor between back gardens. It would be good to place some of these out to see how many are visiting and how often as they only come through at night.

      Hi Laura,

      That’s interesting. We’ll include you when we’ve got enough volunteers near to you.
