Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hog coming out early Reply To: Hog coming out early


Don’t get too hung up on the daylight thing, it’s daytime that’s more significant. Anytime after about 6pm is perfectly normal for my local rabble – I’ve had 5 on the lawn soon after 6pm and they can’t all be in trouble. If they were out at 2pm then I’d be concerned but early evening, as long as they’re behaving “normally”, shouldn’t be a worry.

NB: I live on a big estate and it’s quite likely they get woken up by people coming home from work, slamming car doors, going into the garden, letting out the dog/cat, beating up the kidz etc etc.
