Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Just out of hibernation Reply To: Just out of hibernation


Any ideas please. My garden landscape is now finished and I relocated the hedgehog house back to being behind the shed. It was empty – the resident leaving in March. I got the builders to create two hedgehog holes and put the feeding station by the holes. I am pleased to say lots of hedgehog sightings since then. Since daylight is lasting here until 10pm little problems with having my predator dog out at the same time as the hedgehog.She knows it is around though but so far it has been OK keeping them separate. But as the nights draw in from July I need to be a bit more proactive. I can fence off the hole, feeding station and house quite easily so keeping the predator dog who wants to kill the hog away but I am having difficulty finding a garden railing fencing solution that has 13 cm gap underneath to allow the hog through but will stop the dog from getting to the hog house. So many ideas please!
