Although they are primarily nocturnal, hedgehogs can be seen out during the day if they are pregnant, building a nest or preparing for hibernation (or for a multitude of other reasons). There is usually no need to rescue a hedgehog a hedgehog you see during the daylight in most cases, especially if it seems to be foraging, have a healthy weight (at least 600 grams), or otherwise seems to be healthy. If, however, it is visibly injured, bleeding, sluggish, limping or seems generally unwell, contact us or your local wildlife rescue.
