Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Anyone else got a hedgehog out and about? Reply To: Anyone else got a hedgehog out and about?


Hi, New to the group.
I live in Larkfield Kent and had a visiting Hedgehog late last year so installed a Hedgehog box which it soon found and made a nest. I left it totally untouched over winter and hoped it was snuggled up inside. I watch my CCTV most nights to check if it makes an appearance in the garden and last night 3rd Feb 23 it (hopefully the same one) spent a lot of time foraging in my garden.
Sadly I also saw a rat which in years past I would have put a box out for but now am worried that the hedgehog could get in and take the bait. What are the groups thoughts.
