We have been aware of hedgehogs in the garden for a couple of years now, we feed regularly and I started to garden without chemiclas about 3 years now. Putting in my wildlife pond this year seemed like a natural progression towards encouraging as much wildlife as we can.
Sadly we lost one of the younger hogs a while back after getting him to the rescue centre. I have spotted a larger hog a couple of timesduring the day recently. It looked ok and suspect the work being done in one of the neighbouring gardens by a new neighbour had disturb it. So another step in 'make our garden more wildlife friendly' was to provide a shelter for a hedgehog. I opted to buy a preconstructed model and after reading good reviews online I purchased a Royal Hedgehog House. It was also recommended by many of the Hedgehog sites I found.
After finding a suitable site, here it is in situ. I do hope one of our spiny friends makes good use of it.
