The female appeared to be eating fine when I wasn’t there, and when I did check on her she was curled up sleeping so I released her the next evening. I put her on the grass still curled up and she made no attempt to move whatsoever. I was advised by the rescue centre that all hedgehogs were different and just to leave her, but if she was still there in the early hours to bring her back in. I left some food in front of her and after about an hour or so she’d gone. My trail cam batteries have died on me so I don’t have any hedgie footage for the last few nights  Hopefully both are doing ok.

Penny, the next course is on Monday 6th August, I booked yesterday. Hope you can make it!

Jan-Marie, I placed her near one of the empty hog houses, hopefully she used it. I think the second one that came in and used the other house has gone but not sure due to trail cam failure. Well user failure as I should have checked batteries were ok first! Oh that’s good for your neighbour, spreading the hog love!

I had one email back from a neighbour as the result of my recent leaflet drop during hedgehog awareness week. She told me there was access but she’d never seen a hedgehog and asked if it was worth getting a hedgehog box. I didn’t think it was worth it unless she had obvious signs of hedgehogs visiting, and asked about the surrounding area as my next door neighbour has never had hedgehogs in despite a hole from mine to hers, they seem to pass through my back gate instead. She has gardens either side and at the back and it doesn’t sound like the hole is under her back gate so guessing the other neighbours don’t have holes. She emailed a short response back to say that was a shame, thanks anyway! Not the best response I was expecting, but never mind.
