    I’ve had a hedgehog visiting every night for the last 2 weeks. It doesn’t look ill and it’s a decent size. This is the first year I’ve kept my cameras up in the winter which is how I know it’s out and about. I’ve been putting food and water down and I had hoped it would feed up and go back to hibernate, but it hasn’t. Just wondering if anyone else has a regular January visitor.


    Hi glad to hear you got an Hedgie back, yes i have had a young hog coming every night . First saw him Sept was only small so bought soft dog food so he could beef up a bit before hibernating, but he is sleeping in nearby house and comes out every night and watch him on my camera , so i know its the same little one , he is not so small now and he eats all the food from the bowl and he not hibernating yet .


    hello, my feeding station has remained unvisited since October, although I leave water and some dry food in it just in case. This is the earliest they have stopped visiting even though the weather through October and November was mild.

    Last winter visits stopped around mid-November and I scaled back the feeding. But in late January a large hog appeared in the garden – I rapidly put out meaty dog food, and my trailcam recorded visits to the feeder every night from then until October.


    I’ve seen mine at 4pm in my bird feeder for 10 minutes. Nor sure if he has a bad back leg? Seems to drop a the back when he walked away. Got a video will try to put it on.
