Aha! Word has got around about the free food! If they’re making noise then what you most likely have are a male and a female and they’re discussing making babies. These discussions can be very loud, huffing and puffing, but leave them to it.
If they do make more babies then it’s too late in the year for the little ones to survive the winter (they’re called autumn juveniles). Keep your eyes peeled for tiny (and I mean tiny) hoglets appearing in the autumn because they will need to go to a hedgehog rescue. Do your homework now on finding local hedgehog rescues centres.
Oh, and welcome to your new addiction! Hogs are very addictive indeed as I found out myself. I’ve never been a rabid bunny hugger type and then I found hedgehogs in my garden. I’m now a fully addicted hogaholic.
