Hi Nic, MrsHogoftheHedge,

If there’s one thing that we DO know about hedgehogs, it is that they are unpredictable, so I think that there is every chance that Digger will show up. There could well be a persistent male suitor around who has disrupted her nightly routine and with their courtship lasting several hours it’s not surprising that they can get delayed from time to time. I seem to remember reading a story on here once of a stalker who would wait outside a ladies hedgehog house every evening for the object of his desire to emerge.

The young female in the video Nic is Nagini. She is still quite small, but I think that it is because the males don’t leave her alone for long enough to find enough to eat. I am not sure who the male is yet, but I think that he is very sweet (unlike most of the other yobs!) I can almost visualise him turning up with a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates…perhaps I should name him Romeo.
