Hi Everyone,

Well Im back up and running now with no signs of Badgers for well over 2 months now and Ive a new cam hardwired in as well its brill. Ive started feeding again now and made a new feeding station with a new storage box and a 6 inch angle bend main pipe feed inside in the storage box with a little step inside and a slope with a roughed up entrance floor in the angled pipe.
Next was the cats!…my new cams brill ..did I say that before?…lol, and I watched as the cats looked at the entrance but did not make any attempt to enter the new entrance into the feeding station…hurrah!, thanks Nic and Stef for the advice.
The sad bit of the tale now is that I have not seen any hedgehogs or their poo in my garden for a long few months now, so, I have started spreading a little bit of food around the garden in the evening as a hopeful treat, its attracted the cats back in but there delt with now I just hope the hogs can smell the food as well and it will attract them back in.
Am I right as they can smell food over a great distance?
I know last year they re-appeared around October time and fed and fed for about a month before obviously going into hibernation.
Sorry its a bit of a long post but I just wanted to thanks all those people on HHS who have posted stuff and given me a better idea of how, what where and why. Thanks.
I just hope I haven’t lost them for good now?
