Ten hedgehogs which had been rescued and tended to at Rochdale Hedgehog Rescue were released back to the wild ... more to follow in future weeks.


These were the lady hogs being released tonight. We will allow them to settle-in, before bringing 'the boys' over to ruin their peace!


Each of the reserves continue to be well-used by other organisations for wildlife release; sadly with the amount of house-building alongside many wildlife rescue organisations, their previous release sites can either become overcrowded or unusable altogether.
