The little one (though not so little any more) is still visiting us every night, and we think it may have taken up residence in the hedgehog house at the top of the garden – somebodey definitely has. We are so pleased he is still coming – getting a good feed and gaining plenty of weight. The longer he comes, the more likely he is to survive the winter. And , I think I caught the adult on camera the other night too, so maybe that is just keeping a lower profile rather than hibernating.
We also have plenty of cats, rats and a fox that visits (oh, and a rabbit was in the garden Monday night, for some reason, God knows where that came from) so plenty of animals eating – though I don’t think the cats are eating, just watching, as we put Ark hedgehog food down, which the don’t seem to bother with. The rats like it though 🙁
