Thanks for your responses – sorry for my late reply, got distracted. I will stop putting the food out for a while then. I don’t know why she didn’t want to return one of the babies, but maybe she could see something unsuitable about my garden which I couldn’t. I am relatively new to all things hedgehog.
I haven’t seen any poo yet come to think of it (there was plenty last October) so I will just leave my lovely house in place and hope for the best.
(As you can see – I have invested quite a bit in my spiky friends).
