Thank you Nic. That’s really interesting. I didn’t even know there were hedgehogs visiting our garden until I heard a very strange noise when I looked out of the window one night last June. Since then we’ve watched their nightly visits right up until November 26th. They reappeared exactly four months later and I assumed we would continue to have their company. As you say, their access routes could have been blocked up with everyone doing more in their gardens during lockdown.

I haven’t seen more than three hedgehogs at any one time in the garden. I’m not sure how many were visiting but I was beginning to recognise three individuals from their markings and there were at least another two that I couldn’t individually identify by anything distinctive. I’ll continue to put out food and water and see what happens. They certainly seem to drink a lot when they do visit.
