Hi Nic

Thank you for the info I have stopped feeding mealworms in the quantity that I was and only put a small amount as a treat in the summer since seeing about the trouble with babies development. I now put out the Ark hedgehog food which has been specially developed for them with added vitamins they seem to love it (cats are not interested) and plenty of water.

I just wanted people to be aware that there can be hedgehogs around all through the winter. This morning there was one feeding at 6.15 in the morning and it was -1. I worry that people set up feeding stations and suddenly stop feeding them. I was really surprised by what I found out last winter when I fed them every day.
