A very skinny and undernourished post-hibernation hedgehog, Larry was rescued from the garden of the Lodge and plonked into a hutch to enable a pretty swift ‘fattening-up’.

He piled on the calories in his first few days, and had reached 500g after just 5 nights.

After just over four weeks indoors, by which time he had gained enough weight, he was popped into a pre-release pen – he was released here in the Lodge garden as soon as he was ready, which was after three days.

He hung about for a couple of nights before returning to Snape Wood
