Well, it appears that yet again I have got Brenda and Bruno mixed up and our arctic visitor is in fact male…I think! Every night except for that of the first blizzard, he/she has braved the sub zero temperatures and battled against a good four inches of snow. The snow has, however had one unexpected benefit, in that I have been able to track his/her movements. Judging by the snowy footprints, there have been no expeditions around the garden in search of frozen food, not even a mosey around underneath the bird feeders, just a quick trip from number 2 hedgehog hole, straight to the feeding stations and water/ice bowls and then straight back the way they came. So if any of us were ever in any doubt as to whether our intrepid hogs could survive in arctic conditions, then the answer has to be yes, but I am sure that they are grateful for a bit of a helping hand…like trying to unfreeze the water at gone midnight!
Any sign of hoglet in the snow Nic?
