Last night my trail cam captured the first hedgehog to visit my garden this year.Not seen one since late November.
So pleased as I am a bit of a hedgehog nut!!
How lovely! I wish we had a hedgehog, used to but he disappeared. I wonder if Dove's will be back this year.
No sign of Hefty and his friends yet, but I've put out his dish of fresh water and there's some food out waiting for him.
Mary, have a look here http://www.hedgehogstreet.org/pages/help-hedgehogs.html
That's good news madpenguin, shall keep an eye out on the wildlife cams.
Been finding little presents around the garden for the last couple of days, so knew they were back here too.
Mine were back last night. I heard some rustling the other night when I was checking out my pond with a torch (best time to see newts etc..) although I am sure my neighbours thought I'm abit mad!!! However my instinct was right and an adult hog visited which I started feeding again...
I had 3 asleep in the hog house the other day:-
...and as for the little presents they leave all over the patio seems like there is an army of hedgehogs out there!!!!!
If anyone is interested I have a thread running on the RSPB forum here:-http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/wildlife/f/13609/t/115398.aspx
