Hi Bessie

It’s really exciting that there are hoglets there. But, it’s worrying that the hoglet and then an adult was out during the daytime feeding. I would contact your local hedgehog carer to seek their advice. You can find your local carer by contacting BHPS 01584 890801. Meanwhile, please leave water out in a shady place 24 hours a day.

With the current weather we’re having I wouldn’t worry too much about over-feeding them. Just leave as much as they eat. They were clearly very hungry or wouldn’t be out during the day. But water is vitally important too.

Good luck. Let us know how you and the hogs get on.
