Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hog houses Reply To: Hog houses


Hi Kitty878.
We had a male hibernate in a house in our garden. He was out early and we’ve been watching the house with a trail camera for sign of a decamp so we can clean it out. No signs of that have been happening. Comes and goes through the night and then back in for the day.
A couple of days ago a female appeared which he’s very interested in. Her less so. More interested in eating.
Last night the male came out about 7.30. The female was about most of the night. She went into the house on 2 occasions, once for a few minutes and then for over an hour.
Then a completely new third hog appeared and also went in for a few minutes and then out.
About 5.30 the female turned up carrying a mouthful of grass and in she went and there she stayed.
Original occupant hog went back in once through the night but no sign of him early morning.
Will have to keep watching and waiting. No sign of a lull here at the moment.
