This is a dangerous time of year for some of our best-loved wild animals. Hedgehogs are particularly vulnerable as we start wielding our lawnmowers and strimmers - as Amber Glossop knows only too well. Mel Bloor has been talking to her.
Dooley is still missing, so if you are the New Forest anywhere in the Longslade, Wilverley, Wooton, Tiptoe, Broadley Inclosure, Bashley, Sway areas today please keep your eyes open. If you see him please call us straight away on 07789 647964 or 07810 307046 rather than try to catch him as he's nervous of people and may run off further into the forest. He may well be hiding in bushes somewhere. Thanks again for everyone's help on this. It's hugely appreciated.
We're not giving up; far from it! Unfortunately, nothing more to report though. We are however working on a plan but to do this, we need Dooley to stay within a certain area. Having personally chased him round the forest for the last 12 days for 15 hours a day, we are not getting anywhere and are realising that now Dooley is firmly in survival mode and running scared, he will run from anybody, including us and this is just pushing him further and further afield. Everybody has been fantastic in supporting and offering help.
With the hedgehog population declining by 5% each year, an animal charity in Sussex is asking people to report sightings of the prickly creature.
The East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service is urging anyone who finds a hedgehog to call their rescue line. They will then scan the hedgehog for a microchip to see if it has been previously released in the area.
Their plea comes before with national Hedgehog Awareness Week, which runs from 1st to 7th May.
Hedgehogs are adorable creatures and the most common mammal we see at our Hospital.
It is thought that one of the biggest reasons for the decline is people blocking hedgehog pathways when installing new fencing or proofing gardens so they can't roam through large enough areas to find food or other hedgehogs to mate with in order to keep the population going. You only need a hole the size of CD for hedgehogs to get in and out of gardens."

Dog owners are being warned if their pet isn't microchipped and registered they face a fine of up to £500.
The new law comes into force today and it's thought thousands of owners haven't complied.

An Oxfordshire wildlife park has welcomed the birth of a new zebra. The colt - despite its distinctive stripes - has been named 'Spot'. Visitors named him via the Park's Facebook page.
Spot is the first large mammal birth of 2016 for Cotswold Wildlife Park.
He has now ventured outside and is exploring the paddock and is the sixth member to join the 'dazzle', the collective noun for a group of zebras.
