Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Just discovered a family of hedgehogs living in the garden Reply To: Just discovered a family of hedgehogs living in the garden


I’m new to the group but wanted to share my experience and excitement.

We live next door to an abandoned house, in the garden there are trees that were felled some time ago and not been removed. In May I spotted one hedgehog living happily in the garden, June I spotted another…I was happy with 2.
Now there are 8 – I believe 3 adults and 5 Hoglets.
I am absolutely thrilled. I had no idea they were so noisy but happy to hear them scampering about at night.
Can someone tell me why the scream at night?
