Well I’m no expert, but I’ve been feeding two hedgehogs for the last few months. I had assumed the hogs were visiting from the field behind the house. But have recently discovered I have one living under the shed. I’m pretty sure it’s been there a while and I have noticed over the last couple of days, that the straw bedding I put into the purchased hog house is being moved.
This morning there was a trail of straw leading to the shed. I’m inclined to think I also have a nest builder.
As far as noise levels are concerned, as I was unaware the hog was in such close proximity I have been very noisy and I’m in and out of the shed most days. Doesn’t seem to have deterred the hog though! Although yesterday and last week I heard a bit of hedgehog coughing, so I am trying to work a little quieter around the shed and respect the need for sleep!
The chance of baby hogs is so very exciting! I wish you lots of luck with your little visitors !
