Great footage, love the way you run through the house to catch the other side!
Yes, looks like nest building. She is a very good size and doesn’t look distressed.
Leave some water and food nearish to the nest. Do not be tempted to look in at all.!!! She could abandon the young if disturbed. Your reward will be gorgeous little hoglets
I believe the babies stay in the nest for about 4 weeks before mum will bring them out and show them the ropes.
Pleeasssse keep us posted.
I am also hoping a hedgehog that hibernated in the HH house has or is about to have babies too.
Sooooooooooooooo excited
