The neighbour’s building work may well have been a factor. I had hedgehogs visiting my garden every night, but then BT installed new OpenReach poles in the alley behind my garden and the hedgehogs stopped coming. I was very sad indeed, and drafted angry emails to BT about tramping about in overgrown areas and disturbing endangered critters … But after a few nights of me leaving food scattered around the hedgehog hole between my garden and the alley, the hogs returned, and now two of them have actually moved into the garden and sleep in my hedgehog houses. They do seem to get spooked by upheaval, but I hope yours will return too. ♡
