Hi. I just joined the site. We saw a hedgehog a couple of times at night in our garden so put a house down and the next day it was stuffed full of leaves and a hedgehog had already moved in. This last week the hedgehog has been coming out around 5/6pm while light. She walks around the garden stopping for food we put down then walks out under our gate and heads up a few houses and under another gate. She is always home by the next day and i have seen her do this 3 times and chances are we missed seeing some. She looks a good size and always walks with no sign of injury. Does this mean we might have babies? Should we put extra food around to help them survive.
