Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Looking for advise on my hedgehog house and feeding station. Reply To: Looking for advise on my hedgehog house and feeding station.


I’ve got what I think was a young borderline hog some years ago that seems to return . At weigh in some years ago it was circa 300g, then a few months later I managed to weight it at circa 400 g. This year it frequents a few gardens close bu and I’d suspect it spends its days at the bottom of my garden, where I’ve put up a second fence as the first fence is overgrown with trees as a security feature. The space between fences is a mixture of old garden compost ( leafmould/grass cuttings etc). There is a good gap under the fence( made a lot bigger by my JRT/X Cairn terrier). which I suspect Hog uses to get into my garden.
My feeding station is an broken poundland plant trough ,with two 4 inch holes cut in each end. But I notice that every morning the trough has moved. is it too small for Hog I wonder, as I’ve a photo ( from phone, so Hog is not camera shy)and Hog looks a tad small for the hole in the trough.
