Who's eating the peanuts?
We put a tray of peanuts on the ground for the squirrels to keep them off the bird feeders. During the summer we saw hedgehogs eating them too and leaving the tray full of chewed up bits of nut. The squirrels eat the whole nut leaving only the husk and the great tits take the nuts away to eat. There is a cage over the tray to discourage the wood pigeons but something is eating the nuts during the night and leaving chewed up bits. Surely the hedgehogs are hibernating now? So who is eating the nuts?
