Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Pregnant or hybernating? Reply To: Pregnant or hybernating?


Most likely hibernating at this time of year

Regarding pregnancy, most mums stay for the first few days in the nest with the babies and then come out to forage. But not all. This is often during the day as well as evening as they will come out when the babies sleep. They will also sometimes come out and nap away from the babies and then go back
If there are babies in the nest you may well hear them by now – either rustlings or calls ( like a high pitched peep )

Either way don’t disturb.
