Hello again Nic and sorry for the late response.

Thank you for clarifying about the courtship circling. Yes, it will be wonderful if we have hoglets here! I cannot imagine how hedgehogs manage to mate at all with all those prickles – how do they manage not to get hurt on their sensitive bits?

Yes, I had read that badgers were not good so yes, I certainly hope that it wasn’t a regular visitor.

Thank you re the comments about the cameras and the link. I was most concerned about whether I would be able to work out how to operate the camera as I am not much good with modern technology. I haven’t even got a Smartphone yet!

Still, one of my neighbours (the one who feeds the hedgehogs) now has 2 cameras so if all is lost I can go to her to ask (eventually when lockdown is eased). She says that she has a very cheap one and a more expensive one, and that the cheap one is easiest but you get a red light on that one which is not so good.
