Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hibernating/nesting Reply To: Hibernating/nesting


Hi all,

I had a hedgehog come into my garden last Sunday in the morning frantically picking at the grass. I know a bit about hedgehogs but obviously not the ones found in the UK more the African types. So I assumed that is was a female building a nest to give birth. For the past few days I have only seen the one and set up a camera. I know they a solitary creatures but to my surprise this moring there were two of them. So I am guessing I was wrong, can someone please explain to me are they a mating pair maybe I have max a hedgehog hut but they have not moved in either Ihave tried placing food around but no takers.
