The hedgehog lady!

Mhairi, the Hedgehog lady from Angus Council's Ranger Service is visiting on Friday to talk to us about hedgehog preservation and how we can increase numbers in East Haven. Alarmingly, hedgehogs have declined rapidly on the mainland of Scotland with many being killed on the roads. So great is the concern that some conservationists believe this lovely mammal could be extinct by 2025. Hedgehogs are therefore classified as a priority species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. Mhairi is going to bring us a couple of hedghog boxes as we would like to create a wildlife corridor in the village where we can develop a safe haven for hedgehogs, birds and bees. All welcome for the presentation at Wendy's at 2.30pm.
