Towards the end of September my hedgehogs disappeared and the straws across the entrances to the hog-houses and feeding-stations remained in place.

Over the last few weeks straws have been moved and some of the dried cat food that I leave in the feeding-stations at this time of year has been eaten.
But I’ve not managed to catch them on the trail-cam to be certain that it is the hedgies coming and going.

They stay in for a few days and nights and only venture forth occasionally.
So inevitably if I set up the trail-cam they stay in, and when I don’t put out the trail-cam the straws get moved.

Finally I caught one nipping into the feeding station tonight 🙂

She came out of the hoghouse a couple of metres to the left of the feeding station (the straw had been knocked out).

So far the straws on the other 2 hog-houses remain undisturbed, but being a mild and dryish night I expect that will change.

Here’s the videos.
