  • There are lots of different types. Do you see hedgepigs?

    Love the typo!  No not for a couple of years which is why I started putting piles around. We used to have a huge old chap who could go at some pace across the front of the house and ate half if the back gate to get in! But I haven't seen him this year.

    presumably they are all hibernating just now?

  • Our two regulars aren't. They appear for food each night.

    ok, we are  rural here and back into farmland so presuming there is enough food

     

    am I wrong? And what do I put out to make sure they get it and not our local fox!

  • Google has lots of info, definitely worth a bit of research. One of ours just turned up, the other I released after he spent some time in my clinic after being hurt.

    I was wondering when to stop feeding tooimage Hardly ever see them but there's at least two. The food keeps going but I don't know if it's the pigs eating itimage 

  • Ours are visible every evening in the garden, they say that if food is covered so other species don't nick it, you should stop feeding after a week of it not disappearing.
