Hi Baldwinhedgehog,

Back to the subject of poo, (sorry!). I think you may be right about your mother with hoglets theory. I’ve just been summoned to a meeting on the lawn with my other half to discuss the appearance of four large number two’s all within a few square feet of each other. They were so large that you could have been mistaken for thinking that the local cats had started using our lawn as a toilet again, but no, they are definitely hedgehog. At the same time our monster hog Brenda has gone from patrolling the patio and being recorded on camera for most of the evening, to being almost completely absent with the odd fleeting glimpse here and there. This is the same behaviour that our last female with hoglets showed, a quick dash to feeding station and water bowl, then back through the hedgehog hole to check on the youngsters. Fingers crossed…

Now I’ll go and get busy with the shovel!
