Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Big surprise this morning. Reply To: Big surprise this morning.


Only THREE weeks since our first Hoglets appeared on the scene, sure seems longer than that.
Things are still busy here in the garden. House 1 still has Mum and kids on board. House 2 Mom not seen for a few days, but three hoglets seem fine and staying in the family home. House 3 has seen activity where one of House 1 hoglets has been moving bedding in. House 4 has some signs of interest but certainly not occupied. House 5 now has nearly a full nest built, a big change since I last looked, so will put a camera on that tonight.
Our neighbours replaced the fence near House 2 last weekend so the original hedgehog highway has gone, but he kindly cut a hole in it which they have started to use. I used a trail of Calci worms to help them navigate !
Seeing the growth of the House 1 hoglets has been wonderful, and it seems a lot longer than 3 weeks since Mom first moved them in.
