I’ve got a polythene sheet over my hedgehog home – I had to put one on as my hedgehog house is a wooden dome, so doesn’t have a felt roof like most of the wooden ones do, and I thought I would need to protect the wood a bit, then I put a big pile of brash on it, just to make it look more natural.

Personally, I would leave your nest now, as I don’t think they like their nests being disturbed, your hog might up and leave as they do that when they don’t feel secure.

And now that you’ve staked it down, and put logs on top, it will help to stop predators from lifting it.

But see what Nic says, he’s one of the Hedgehog Street’s experts!
