Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Too early for hibernation? Reply To: Too early for hibernation?


I have had hogs in the garden for a good few years now and always saw them at the feeding station, food always gone by morning but for the past 3/4 weeks now the food hasn’t been touched. I would have thought it was too early to hibernate then, especially as the weather has been so mild. We did catch one on the camera but it didn’t go into the feeding station. Last year we had a nest with mother and 5 babies but there is no sign of anything at the hog house or the nearby nesting sites in the garden, should I be worried.
