We have had Hedgehogs visiting our garden from early spring and through September and they are still coming now as the colder weather with rain has come. We are not sure how many visit our garden as it’s difficult to distinguish them apart! I know we have a rather large Male and I mean large, it’s a wonder he can get in the feeding station we have for them, then there are some medium sized Hogs and we do see a small one come in.
They are getting earlier as the nights are drawing in and I have to remember to put the food out before dark. I’ve decided mine are very fussy Hedgehogs I’ve tried meaty wet cat food, dry meaty cat food the same with dog food, not interested! Dry specially produced for hedgehogs but they tend to chuck it out the dish to get to the moist Hedgehog food! I’ve decided it’s more cost effective to just buy the moist, which of course is more expensive, as by the morning every bit is gone and there is no dry biscuits getting wet on the driveway! Note:But they are worth it!
The video is a short selection of Hedgehog movement in September, they come in early and are moving about until dawn. I don’t know how long they will be feeding but I’ll put some food out until it’s left for a few nights. We had them coming in and out all through the winter one year, but who knows what this winter will bring!
