Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings A new hog arrives Reply To: A new hog arrives


Great to hear that the little hog has found your patio and able to fill up each night, particularly as the weather is starting to turn.

We had two hogs hibernating in hog houses in the garden over winter last year, both of which hung around into spring. Through the summer and into autumn a young male and female would visit the feeding station nightly, but unfortunately neither of them took up residence and we’ve not seen them for a few weeks now.

We keep leaving food and water out in the feeding station, and a good supply of dry leaves by the hog houses in case we get a late taker for accommodation.
