Hi Nic
I know it doesn’t sound really early, but for instance it’s 4.30 now and still daylight here. Being far west might make a difference?
Difficult to see who is feeding as this A frame house (a gift) hides visitors – could do with a window 🙂
All I know is that a lot of biscuits are being eaten, though a lot of crumbs left also. Has to be more than one hedgie so thinking it’s the two young hoglets I saw and weighed last month as assuming all the others are hibernating?
Might get the clear plastic ‘thingy’ out as a dry food cover as I can at least see what hedgies are eating inside that.
So wet in this area the food requires covering at present.
Thanks for advice, hope it’s not just me that has these silly worries !
