Hedgehog is the only animal in Britain covered in spines, if alarmed, it will roll into a ball protecting itself from predators. This nocturnal mammal is not fussy about the food, it will eat anything from slugs and worms to birds’ eggs and frogs. In autumn hedgehogs start preparing for winter hibernation by collecting leaves, grass and reeds, to build their nest under places such as – compost heaps, sheds, piles of leaves, fallen logs or shrubs.
