Hi Nic

Thank you very much for the info. Yes I do leave water out I clean the bowl and put fresh water in morning and night. I also put food out consisting of a bowl of caned hedgehog food (about a third of a can) plus a bowl of crunchie hedgehog food, a small amount of bakers complete dried dog food, a small amount of go cat, a small amount of dried meal worms, and a hand full of mixed nuts cut up or crushed they really seem to enjoy the nuts. Photos don’t seem to be allowed on here if the were I could have posted a couple to show you the set up I have at the moment.

Also a funny thing happened the other night, I also feed a family of foxes out the front of the house I have been doing this for around two years. Eating at one of the plates there were three foxes two cubs and one adult fox and a hedgehog, the hedgehopped didn’t seem at all bothered with the foxes nor the foxes with the hedgehog though I did go out and pick the hedgehog up and carefully carried him round the back of the house to were the hedgehog food and water is. I’m not sure if I did the right thing but he didn’t seem to mind.
