Hi Nic

Think I’ve been lucky so far re rats, but discovered this week that the tiny cat who regularly visits was getting into one of the feeders so has been well fed over winter! Adjusted the entrance & she can’t get in now. but the hogs have been there & emptied the dish the last few nights leaving me with telltale crumbs..

I surprised a good sized hedgehog in the week, went out just before dusk, lifted the lid to put the dishes in one of the feeders & he/she was waiting inside. Plonked the food down & he got stuck in. Then last night met the same one coming out of the hedgehog nest box, hay has been taken into it for several nights so at last he may be moving in after a whole winter of it being empty. By the marking on its back end it’s one of the year before last’s youngsters. It’s so cold, I wonder where this hog spent winter, hopefully he’ll decide to stick around now as each night he’s come out of the nestbox at dusk.
