Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Nesting hedgehog. Reply To: Nesting hedgehog.


Hi Gr8mums, it is surprising what hedgehogs will use for nesting material. In a suburban setting they will use whatever they can find. I do put hay out for them when I know they are building a nest, but this one done all that over a night or so. Was not putting food in that one as it was not being used. Noticed the blue this morning when I went out with the bird food.

It just goes to show just what a messy species we humans are, when you see stuff like that in a hedgehog nest. Same with birds, they will use whatever they can find during nesting season.
