Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings first hog of 2018 Reply To: first hog of 2018


Hello all. Decided to renovate a fern in my garden two days ago, I’d already started on it the day previously. Was clearing out some of the dead leaves and rubbish underneath and just about to scrape away the debris and I spotted a slumbering hedgehog. Quickly put all the debris back and made sure he was covered up ok. Looks like that job will have to wait for some other time. There is another fern close by and I’ve decided to leave that one – just in case! I have to say I was gutted that I might have disturbed him. There have been signs of hedgehog activity in the garden and we have been putting food out for about three days now. Tonight there were two adults on my patio. One slightly smaller than the other. Last year I had seven, three young ones, two intermediate and two full sized adults. At one point I had five feeding on the patio and two young ones up on the path – and I didn’t take a picture!!!!! This year I am ready to go – camera set up on a tripod.
