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


It looks like several different hedgies are frequenting the garden judging by their spine patterns. They are all merrily coming through the hole in the fence and the trellis into the garden between 11 pm and about 2 am. My landscapers put a couple of rolls of turf between the shed and fence. I left them thinking they would be a bug hotel and placed the hedgehog house and straw bale behind the turf, Within the fenced off hedgehog only space. Now I am wondering if the turf rolls are being a barrier (about 10 inches high) as I cant see any sign of any of the hedgies attempting to access the house – not even the one who hibernated there over winter. Any suggestions?
