Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Reporting hedgehog tracks? Reply To: Reporting hedgehog tracks?


Hi Nic
Thank you for your very detailed replies and associated links!
I’ve been away for a few days, so only just caught up with your posts.

With regard to your comment about suitable habitat, it has been noticeable that the tracks I’ve seen are in areas of small coppice and grazed fields, where i would guess food and cover are plentiful.

I thought that reporting tracks might not count as a live sighting, so I’ve been chatting to the landowners for pemission to place camera traps, and I’m hopeful to have some proper sightings to report soon.

Meanwhile, at home, in our estate, we have two or three hogs passing through nightly, which is great news☺

Many thanks
