Hi ElizR

Hedgehogs do sometimes change the places they visit a bit. There can be various reasons, i.e. the females disappearing for a while to give birth and the males potentially adapting to the female’s presence or otherwise. Both males and females have fairly large ranges – apparently some can travel up to 2 miles a night so they won’t necessarily visit all parts of their ranges on any particular night. So they may just be concentrating on other parts of their ranges, although there are other potential reasons as well.

Hopefully if they know they can access some supplementary food at your place, they’ll be back at some stage.

Good luck – hope a hog or hogs return(s) soon.
