Hedgehogs found in garden

On the night of 14 March when putting out fresh food for any hedgehogs, I noticed a small hedgehog by the soft release box.  On checking him out I saw another one close by.  One is a male 450g and the other (unable to check gender)  weighed 575g. Which is unusual as hedgehogs are solitary animals. Both are being kept in soft release pen to increase their weight and will be released at a later date.

On cleaning out the soft release pen on the 15 March  we found a third hedgehog.  It is a male and weighs 550g.  All three have been examined  and except for some ticks which we removed, they all  appear to be  in good health other than a little under weight
