Found pretending to be a burned orphan in Wiltshire

Wildlife Sanctuaries across the UK are feeling the effects of the heatwave, with many more animals than usual crossing their thresholds every day.

One Sanctuary ,"Debbies Donkeys" in Wales said that every morning seagulls are queueing by the door to come in, get a drink and a bit of fish. Debbie commented," some of them have sunburned feet and we have to treat them, they get to stay for a couple of days eating and drinking, they can be a bit rowdy, picking on the otters and stuff. We found a few with paper glue on their feet, trying to make it look like blisters."

Meanwhile, baby hedgehogs with burned and blistered noses are another frequent visitor to Sanctuaries. "Henriettas Hogs" worker, Dennis Hogvogel, told us that the ground is baked so hard that their little baby noses get grazed trying to dig. He offered up some advice to those of us feeling sympathy for the hoglets though," Don't waste your tears" he told us, " Their mothers are rubbing their noses onto concrete to get a free weekend here, we've caught them at it."

Meanwhile, Spring watch will be featuring an interview about robins addicted to sugar water left out for Britains bees.
