Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Helga returns Reply To: Helga returns


Hi Nic,

We were very relieved to see her return, as we only started providing for her after we found her in the garden last summer during daylight.

She seems very happy with the hut, but it does catch the sun in the afternoon. Do you think we should try to shade the hut to prevent it overheating in summer, and if so, can you suggest anything ?

We don’t really have many shady spots when the sun rises a bit.

Thanks in advance,

PS. We also have a resident female blackbird who has started picking up any cat biscuits that Helga leaves, so it looks like we are feeding more of the locals now 😁
