The same has happened in my garden too.
I have had lots of Hedgehogs frequenting my garden since May & then i am guessing they had their babies either in my garden or very close by , as for a few weeks there were hoglets also , feeding along side the adults & then since the middle of August i have no sightings of any.
I feel quite sad as not to see them & like yourself i have the ideal habitat & shelter for them , i hope they have all survived & that like Nic say’s possibly have gone into hibernation elsewhere or are foraging elsewhere.
I did think it was still quite warm for them to have gone into hibernation but i guess if the body clock says its time then who am i to correct.
I am still putting out food just in case & I hope they return in the spring as do yours.
In the meantime the mice are having a feast on the cat biscuits i leave.!!
