Hedgehog Survey 2020
Help us map out hedgehog-friendly gardens in Belle Vue
In conjunction with
If you want to get involved, fill in this questionnaire all about hedgehogs in your area.
We would also like a sketch of your property showing which boundaries a hedgehog could get through.
A hedgehog needs a gap of only 14 cm (5.5 inches). If you have a very simple garden just a good description would be sufficient. Please indicate whether hedgehogs can get to your garden from the front of the house or not.
Each boundary could be highlighted as:
Red - no access for hedgehogs
Amber – limited access (one or two small and possibly difficult holes in boundary)
Green – easy access in the form of perhaps just a hedge open at base or large gaps to the next property or front of house.
Take a look at this map: Type in your property address, and zoom in to find your house and garden. Then right click the image to print out, or you could simply copy this onto paper to get a simplified boundary to mark up.
Or you could add your boundaries direct in Google Maps. This does take a little more IT skill!
You need a Google account to sign in. Then click the ‘Edit’ near the title. Use the map editing buttons to add you own line. The one with 3 linked dots is used for adding lines.
When you have your questionaire and map, please email it to us, and we will do the rest. Don't forget to give us your name and a contact number as well please. If you would prefer to post a hardcopy - please deliver to 7 Link Road, Belle Vue, Shrewsbury SY3 7QP
