Hello Simbo,

You’re right. We will wait until they’re gone. Fresh water is always supplied next to the bird feeding station in a big plant saucer, behind and in front of our house. I realised the importancy last year when it was so terribly hot for many days/weeks. We were sitting on the terrace early evening, still bright daylight, when suddenly a hedgehog emerged, running like Speedy Gonzales over the lawn straight away to the water place and drank and drank and drank…. It must have nearly died of thirst.
I provide dry hedgehog food from time to time. Since the little family’s here, every night. It’s next to the water. I’ve just read some of your postings. So you’ve got eventually little hoggies, too? Good luck with them and your one eyed Cyclopsina 🙂
