Hi MazEmaz

Welcome to the Forum. Pleased to hear that you have had a hedgehog there and I hope it’s been continuing to visit. Brilliant that you are buildidng a home. Don’t be too disappointed if a hog doesn’t move in straight away – some hogs won’t use the boxes until they become part of the landscape. But you might be lucky and have a tenant quickly.

Don’t forget to leave water out for the hedgehogs, preferably 24 hours a day. I use wide but shallow plant saucers, so that they aren’t so deep that a hoglet can’t get out.

Good luck.
