I haven’t seen any of the local visitors since the first half of October. I think most of them were males so may have all hibernated a bit earlier. I keep putting some dry food in the feeding box just in case and occasionally set the trailcam but only a mouse (and slugs) over the last couple of months. Last winter, I had to get the feeder out in mid-January after I saw a hedghog on the lawn one evening. It was a very good weight and after that date the trailcam recorded footage of hog(s) in the feeder every night right through from January to October. So this winter have decided to keep putting a small amount out, plus water, just in case.
