Thats great Jacque,when you are an official release person do you have to keep a diary or register to try and track their progress?....

26 Feb, 2009

 

How great! Congrats Jacque, you deserve it.
Hope they find as good homes elsewhere as we all know they will have with you. : )

26 Feb, 2009

 

I really don't know what they do it for. The hole is already big enough for them to get in and out. I just think the tit that comes is a bit of a bird brain.

26 Feb, 2009

By the time you read this, Jacque, your garden will be full of hedgehogs. Brilliant - What a lovely start of the day for you, to receive that news. Gives a lovely warm glow inside, doesn't it. Well done and congratulations on your official status - I know they will all be very well cared for in your garden. I wish I was nearer so I could come and peep over your fence - bet you won't want to go to bed tonight :)

26 Feb, 2009

 

Ooooh, yes please, we'd luuurve to see pics of "hoggy!" I'm soooo jealous!!! I'd love to have a hoggy or 2 in my garden, they'd certainly never go hungry with the amount of slugs etc we get in our garden!!! I've spent so much money on plants, that my hubby won't let me buy a hoggy home tho', :-( We have had a hoggy visit us, but he never stayed in the garden. Will yours stay? Keep us updated, won't you?

26 Feb, 2009

 

Jacque, you're a star - you deserve a big pat on the back! I'm so pleased he has made such a fantastic recovery - all down to you. Can't wait for an update. :-)

26 Feb, 2009
