Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hedghogs have vanished Reply To: Hedghogs have vanished


We have a similar experience. So excited to see hedgehog for first time this year, and on 24 June Mum and 5 hoglets appeared from under our shed. We have been feeding and filming them progressing (getting braver coming out to feed and returning under the shed) . Gradually over 1 week we saw them individually . A week ago we saw another adult pushing around the Mum, we think mating. Very little sighting of Mum in the night and now nothing recorded and no food eaten for 3 nights.
What has happened, surely even wandering they would visit for the food?
we have even made a hibernating hut for later! So disappointed as we have had to wait 20 years for this. Any advice?
