It was quite old – some of the really old ones were deleted when they revamped things.
Sorry to hear it’s not possible to get neighbours to help – I know it isn’t always possible. It’s probably worth trying the feeder before you go. It could be useful to others on Hedgehog Street if it works. Sometimes it takes hogs a while to get used to things, too. But the perceived wisdom is that, as what we offer the hogs is supposed to be supplementary, hopefully the hogs would be able to find wild food for a short period of time. Water could be more of a problem, even if left in the shade. Hopefully what we just had was the last of that really hot weather (although that might be wishful thinking!). But it might be useful to know if the hogs do take to the water ‘feeder’. That should, of course, be left in the shade, too – although I’d be slightly worried about it getting algae in it (if left for several days) if the weather got really hot again.
But it looks as if you might have to be the ‘experimenter’ to see if the hogs take to the feeders. Let us know how you get on with them.
