Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hog female moving in Reply To: Hog female moving in


You’re right, she isn’t hibernating, she comes out to forage in the evening. As i said, I’m building a hog house so will try to pick her up (carefully) and introduce her to it.
As to the family thing, that was just my shorthand and based on discussions with neighbours. They all move around separately apart from the female with the hoglets.
The numbers are my best guess based on sightings, individual markings etc.
Not sure how to deter them from coming in next year as, like I said, the cats need access. I’m sure I’ll think of something.
Thanks for the response.
