Hi Wildlifehaven

So pleased to hear the hogs have returned there.

Once we have got well into the hedgehog season, (i.e. when there are not likely to be any more really hungry hogs just returned from hibernation) I tend to only leave food out whilst I am up to watch. Partly to make sure rats and cats don’t get it, but also because I like to think they are doing some foraging as wild hedgehogs should. The hogs seem to realise this and turn up earlier – which is handy for watching. At the moment, I am still leaving a little bit out for late comers, but from the cam, I see that it doesn’t last long. I see from the cams that they still come into the garden, but maybe not always right up to the viewing/feeding area – although there is always water there as well, which they like.

I cannot identify most of them on the cams – the pictures on mine are not that good and hogs often too far away, but I don’t mind at all. It is just interesting watching them and their behaviour.
