Oh, it’s not my first sighting, just my first sighting of three at the same time. At least one of them, I’m sure, has been before because it is quite a distinctive colour, and I’m sure that one has gone into the feeder previously. But I had a plastic box at first and the one hedgehog I saw previously didn’t seem to trust that, so I built one out of old bricks which were lying nearby with a lid made of bits of a big smashed flower pot because I thought they’d be more familiar with that….and it seemed to work. It’s not very big though, so there’s probably only room for one inside. But even after the first one left, one of the others returned and sniffed the entrance and then wouldn’t go in.
I’m trying again tonight with the old plastic storage box one as well. See if they trust it more now they know there are tasty treats inside.
