Hello ACW269,
How wonderful to have hedgehogs visiting you 🙂
I would continue to put food out in your feeding station but maybe also scatter some suitable dry hedgehog/kitten/puppy food around the garden? Hedgehogs are short sighted but have a good sense of smell. They will happily rummage about in the garden chomping on whatever goodies they find.
As always see Nic’s excellent advice re: making your garden/outside space more wildlife friendly, thereby giving the hogs a natural source of food.
Thank you for being so kind and considerate to your nocturnal visitors. I am suffering from closed mind neighbours and lack of hedgehogs at the moment, so well done you!
