Hedgehog maniacs

For any big hedhog 'enthusiasts' I recommend you to read 'A Prickly Affair' by Hugh Warwick. Very enjoyable read which gives a good insight in the best and the worst sides of conversation in action and covers the madness of the yearly Hedgehog 'clean-up' in Uist in quite a lot of interesting and witty detail. You can also join the Hedgehog Preservation Society for £7.50 a year on http://www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/
