    Hi all,
    I’m completely new to this group and am just starting to learn all about hedgehogs. Today I spotted one in my garden for the first time in years . It was out during the daytime, which I know is not a good sign.
    What does it mean and what can I do to help? We have installed a hedgehog box at the bottom of our garden (but don’t know if it currently being used or not) and have several holes in the fences on both sides so it can get through into our neighbours’ gardens. We have hens in our garden too.


    You need to contact your nearest carer for advice. The number is on the front page here for the BHPS who will be able to help


    Hi I have got a resident hog who is in his house under a tree in my garden, but maybe 2 or 3 times a day he sometimes comes out for a drink or he goes behind the hog house I presume for a poo, I see him every night and he looks fine and just goes back into his house , they do this sometimes.
