Hello, I’m new to Hedgehog Street. I had a Mum and three hoglets nesting in my garden this spring/summer. Have so enjoyed watching them from my first-floor window. I have two bought hedgehog homes in the garden but Mum has preferred a small compost heap at the back of a border between a wall and a very large plant container.
I have been putting food out for them (Spike’s hedgehog food and mealworms) but I have recently become concerned that these are not the best for them – a bit like junk food. In fact I’ve learned that quite a lot of pet food can be bad for pets in the long run.
Now found Ark Wildlife which has been developed for hedgehog rescue centres so feel happy that I can keep them fed and help safeguard them from long-term diseases. I still see the three hoglets on the odd time I go out into the garden late evening. They are still a lot smaller than their Mum.
