Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Is anyone seeing fewer heggies for the time of year? Reply To: Is anyone seeing fewer heggies for the time of year?


Hi, I was gifted a garden cam two weeks ago and to my excitement finally got to see footage of a hedgehog . It was very active over several nights and then 4 nights ago – nothing. The straw strand across the hedgehog house has not been disturbed and the food untouched. Surely it is far too soon (and too warm still) to be hibernating. Hedge is definitely in the house (I peeked and it seemed to flinch slightly) but I”m worried it may be unwell. Should I leave alone now or disturb it and take to a vet or Tiggywinkles. I guess I”m asking if the hedgehog hunkering down this early is unusual?
