Hello ipscloud, so pleased to hear you’ve got a little hoggie in the garden. I’m sure he’ll visit your hogilos too, especially the way the weather has been recently, somewhere nice and dry is certainly appreciated by the hedgehogs.

I can tell you that you’ll get so much fun out of your wildlife camera – it’s priceless. We have had ours since this April and it has been the best gadget ever! You might see more than just hedgehogs, when there’s food out other wildlife will come too.

Great to hear that you planted native shrubs in your garden – you are doing a lot for your local wildlife. Ivy is late flowering and will really help the bees with finding nectar late in the year and the other plants will provide a lot of nectar during spring and summer. We have a Cottoneaster at the back of our garden and the bees enjoy the flowers in the summer and in winter, when the berries are ripe, they are picked by groups of fieldfare.
