Our hedgehogs have also stopped their nightly visits for food though it does seem very mild for them to be hibernating already.
We think it is partly due to a plentiful supply of natural food which is good.
There have been huge numbers of daddylonglegs around over the last few weeks and earlier in the year we kept finding body parts of stag beetles around the garden so they seem to be another favourite.
Our neighbours told us they once watched a hedgehog catch a frog and run off with it!
On the subject of food (we feed ‘The Right Food for Hedgehogs’ from Tescos which is very good and much cheaper then other brands) we are amazed at the amount of water they drink. They frequently drink from the water we leave out for up to ten minutes at a time, then take some food and go back for more! Water seems to be equally as important as food for them.
