I was given a hogitat hedgehog house some time ago and thought I'd better get on with siting it. I've never seen hedgehogs in my garden but I live in hope.
The plan is to have it with the entrance facing the fence (with room for the hogs to get through, obviously!), surround it with leaves and rotting wood and eventually to build a bug hotel with pallets, pots, wood etc etc on top of it.
Here's where I've got to so far
^ That's the position, with a pile of leaves under where the hogitat will go.
I've started to surround it with rotting wood. Then when the kids get home we'll gather loads of leaves to put on top.
Is there anything I should have done that I haven't, or vice versa?
It's a very foxy area - SE London - and the foxes spend a lot of time in this bit of the garden, but to be honest they're everywhere anyway so I couldn't site it away from them.
