I tend to follow this sites advice for feeding hedgehogs. I have just introduced
suet pellets with Insects. I cants give them wet dog or cat food because we have so many foxes and cats around. I have had cats crawl through the tunnels and the little fox cubs would have no trouble. I will try again with dried kitten chicken cat food and see if the cats try to get it.
What I want to know is, what is best sunflower hearts or sunflower seeds. I always used sunflower hearts but able reading the latest advice now I am
not so sure. I have just I added sunflower seeds to the mix.
Trying hard to get the neighbours involved. The chap across the road is desperate to get hogs in to his garden. I showed his child my hogs I brought back form oak and furrows before I released them because he has ever seen a hedgehog and he was desperate to see a wild hedgehog. I have lent him
my camera and one of my feeding stations to see what he gets. His next
door neighbour is going to dig a trench after I advised her the gaps were not big enough. Fortunately for me when I had new neighbours a few years ago. They are not gardeners and have kept all their big bushes and trees but just keep them tidy and they have not blocked up my hedgehog runs.
