Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings so happy – Huffy is nesting in my garden Reply To: so happy – Huffy is nesting in my garden


You know so much about hedgehogs.

I think there are some females that visit the feeding station, I had 3 in all at the same time last night – and there is often some very mild biffing going on – just a little push – but Huffy was really going for it one night, that’s when I assumed he was a male.

Unfortunately, no-one has been near my hedgehog home, I realise now I’ve put it in the wrong place.

I haven’t seen much of Huffy lately, but I think I keep missing him as I can’t spend all night sat outside – but now, I have a constant stream of visitors all throughout the night – I haven’t a clue how many of them are – and the little hedgehogs, a few months ago, have grown – I saw a fairly small one last night – they are either different hedgehogs – or they are the small ones that have grown .

Two months ago, I’d be lucky to see one hedgehog a night, now every night – I will see at least two in the feeding station at the same time.

Eventually, I might work out who’s who, because they are in different sizes, it’s only Huffy I recognise for now.

As I’ve not seen him, I don’t know if he’s moved on, I might put some straw near his entrance again and see if it gets flattened down by him.
