Hi Alison-Essex

How lovely to have had hoglets in your garden!

It might just be that the hoglets are beginning to explore further afield. But hedgehogs do tend to disapper from certain areas sometimes, and everyone always get worried, but usually they eventually return. Although, with hoglets it’s likely they won’t all return – they might find new ranges for themselves. (Hedgehogs have ranges rather than territories and those ranges overlap).

I would keep leaving out a bit of food for them and definitely water. It’s best to leave out water all day every day. Fingers crossed that at least Mother hog eventually returns and hopefully also a hoglet or two.
