Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post on, but I couldn’t find how to start a new one!

We have a new hedgehog in our garden, we have a hedgehog house built, but wonder where we should put a feeding station?

Should the food and drink be put next to the hedgehog house? Or can the feeding station go by our house, eg on the patio by our back doors? The hedghog house is some way for our back doors, in a quiet spot, so I wondered if they would avoid the food if it is too close to our house, kitchen noise / lights etc!

Any advice would be much appreciated! I have found lots of info online about what / not to feed them, and how to build feeding stations to deter foxes etc, but I cannot find advice on where is best to PUT the food.

Many thanks in advance.
