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


Hello New to the forum and to hog stress!! Moved house 6months ago and we are lucky enough to have a hoglet that has been feeding every night for about 3 weeks.
Saw a full grown hog about 8 weeks ago but this hoglet is now on his own?
We have brought a hog house but do have a lovely natural wild…ish! garden
I am concerned that he hasnt gone into hibernation yet
We live on the Isle of Wight so not as cold here yet…will he be ok..I will keep putting out food and water which he is still eating every night…love we have hogs and really want to help them
