Reporting form - Hogwatch

Reporting form

You can tell us about your hedgehog sighting here. If you’ve seen hedgehogs at two different places and/or times, please fill in the form twice. And please come back again when you spot another one – Our Hogwatch is running until November 2015.

Later in the project, when people have been looking out for a while, we will add another form so you can tell us if you haven’t seen a hedgehog. This data will be most useful if you are frequently in the same place – at least twice a week, at a suitable time – dusk or in the dark. It will be just as important for us to know where there aren’t hedgehogs as well as where they are.

If you have any problems with this form, or any questions, please email us or phone Rachel on 01226 762670.
