On Wednesday the 13th of November, the children from Little Pips Nursery on Lowden Avenue had some very special little visitors! Kim Goodridge a hedgehog rescuer, bought along 3 baby hedgehogs that she had rescued.
The children learned that when the hedgehogs were babies, they were initially fed baby rice with goats’ milk, before eventually moving on to kitten food. They also learned about the hedgehogs’ homes, and how they make them. She also mentioned that if you are lucky enough to have these very special little visitors to your garden, you can buy a specialist hedgehog food from Wilkinsons.
The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the best bit was that they got to put their mittens on to hold them… So lucky!
