I tend to keep my grass cut short. The birds like it and find lots of worms.
Some years ago I stacked a pile of old lods and rotten wood in a corner of my front garden. I noticed some droppings near there and wandered if it was a hedgehog so started putting out food. Something was eating it but saw cats near there so assumed it was them and gave up.
Nothing like a true sighting though! I’ve seen a hog twice now in my back garden, and am regularly feeding – someone’s eating it!
I’m missing out the odd night though so they don’t come to rely on dog food, but I’ve started another wood pile in nearby.
