Thanks Nic
I have a small bail of hay in the shed and a hedgehog house at the top of the garden that we don’t think has had anybody in – haven’t checked properly as we did not want to disturb any potential resident. I shall put some fresh hay out tomorrow. Little one is still visiting – the photo I took of it last Friday (10th) is on the site under my real name (Laurence Harrison) – he/she seems quite a bit larger now, maybe that is just me being positive ๐Ÿ™‚ More of a juvenile than a hoglet, we think. Not too keen on the idea of weighing as we don’t want to spook it. Whilst it seems to be getting used to the noise of us being around (the larger one doesn’t seem to get spooked by us at all, but it has had 2 summers to get used to us) it is still quite skittish – though never seems to stray too far from the feed bowl if we do disturb. Yes, we are leaving freash water out too. Plenty of crunchy biscuit Ark hedgehog food, with a good sprinkling of mealworms on top to add to the fat content.

edit – my profile picture is now the photo of the young one taken last Friday. Soooo cute ๐Ÿ™‚
