Hi Nic,

Yes, and the good news is that I have already had over 40 replies on the Nextdoor website from people who are already doing their bit or have shown interest and said they will visit hedgehog street so I am very pleased!

I have put some straw in the 3 houses and as there are a lot of deciduous trees in the near vicinity, I have been sweeping the leaves up and scattering them all around the houses. I have also put loads of leaves and twigs and small branches over the top to help insulate them, as well as making sure there are little air flow holes so that they can have some fresh air circulating.

I am a bit concerned that I have been a little too enthusiastic with the houses and maybe put them a little bit too close together, but I have kept the feeding station a little further away so it is not too close to them. So, a quick question. Should I carry on leaving out a small amount of food in the feeding station all through the winter or just leave some water out?
