Sage Hedgehog's vision
|Offspring||Several unnamed hedgehogs|
|First Book Appearance||Farthing Wood: The Adventure Begins|
Farthing Wood: The Adventure BeginsEdit
Sage Hedgehog awoke after the winter and he has a vision of a nature reserve and a white stag. He tells the other hedgehogs about this, but they shun him. They same with the foxes, stoats and weasels, though the badgers believe him.
He is always trying to convince the foxes not to harm the Farthing Wood Otters, especially after Lean Vixen and Sly Stoat give them poisoned voles. When the foxes are searching for the otters, he tells Stout Fox that he will take no part in their feud, and that he wishes the otters no harm.
At the Assembly, he doesn't say much to the larger animals until the very end when he talks to Kindly Badger about how it was a failure. Soon Sage Hedgehog spies two men in the Wood taking measurements of it for the nearby construction company.
At the end of the novel, Sage Hedgehog has one last vision of a leader and the one that saves them all, predicting what is to happen in The Animals of Farthing Wood.
