Britain's most vulnerable species

After the exotica of Kenya, my attention was brought home to our own endangered species after I found two baby hedgehogs in the garden.
They look too small to be able to survive the oncoming winter and so for the moment I've brought them inside.
According to the animal rescue experts Tiddlywinkles they need to be over 600gs otherwise they won't make it through the winter.
I'm going to weigh them to make sure but they seem much too small. It means they are likely to be with me until next spring, I'll keep you posted on how they get on.
