Last night the coldest of the year I had a visit from a hedgehog on 6 separate occasions through the night. What worries me is that people set up hedgehog feeding stations and they are not there when they need them in the depths of winter because hedgehogs ‘hibernate’. That is two years now that I have fed them in winter and they seem to be flourishing in my garden. I will be putting out 4 more hedgehog houses in the spring when I find out what happened with the 4 I have already put out.
