    I have just joined hedgehog street. We have a trail camera in our garden filming the hoggies by their food bowls. Most nights we see one hedgehog and often even two. Last night we were really lucky and our camera recorded three hoggies! The third one was quite a bit smaller (I suppose it was a hoglet born this summer) but was enjoying the food food we put out.

    Hi leafy 321

    Welcome to the forum. Good to hear you have hogs there. Is your profile pic the little one. Not always easy to tell from a photo, but it looks as if it might be a youngster.

    Happy hog watching.


    Thanks for the nice welcome Nic. My profile picture is indeed that of a little one but it was taken last year. Then we had a mum with 3 young ones visiting our garden. I think she often slept under our shed as we noticed the grass being flatter in one/two places where she must have crawled in/out from under our shed. This year I did not spot any tiny ones.


    I,ve just had the same thing, all three at the feeding bowl at the same time, all very amicable, no pushing or shoving at all. Was a lovely spectacle.


    Hi Leafy 321,
    We have also had three hedgies over night, spotted on our trial camera. They
    all appear to be the same or similar size having fed here most of the year. However one night this year we actually had four for the first time. We think he was possibly a visitor from elsewhere as he took ages to move to the feeder. It was great to think we are now encouraging outsiders in. Look forward to the day when we see five or more, especially mother and children. Keep up the great work.
