So I was brought a hedgehog house when we moved into our new home as I always wanted one and I am keen to attract wildlife in the garden. Being slight more in the countyside now I thought there would be plenty!
I put the house out about a month ago thinking that they would be coming out of hibernation. I also put out some food.....I wait and waited but nothing
Last week I noticed the straw had been squashed down in the enterance and I took a little look inside to find my first hedgehog!! Was so happy! Spent a few evenings watching him potter about in the garden and eating the food we put out. He even chased after my very confused cat!
But since then his gone and the food hasnt been touched. Is this normal for them to do that? I have read they move about a lot so dont tend to stay in one place. Any tips on how to get more to come to the garden? I am really keen to have more as I know they are a less common sight now.
