    Having fed our hedgehogs nightly since early spring, feeding visits are slowing down. Tuesday to Thursday no visits at all but all the food disappeared last night. Considering i don’t live in ideal hibernation habitat i.e. not much in the way of broadleaf woodland or thick scrub, i suspect the hedgehogs that hang around here to breed and feed in the summer are wondering off prospecting for suitable dry places for winter. Last year we had hedgehogs feeding well in to November so i will keep feeding and see what happens, but activity is definitely slowing down.

    Hi Baldwin hedgehog

    Things have been slowing down here too. Good idea to keep putting food out, though, apart from anything else, in case any late hoglets (and possibly their Mums) turn up.


    Hi Nic,
    I will probably provide food into December and monitor what happens. i believe hedgehogs are known to stir from hibernation sometimes so it will be interesting to see if any food disappears over winter.
    i believe we only have one active hog here now the others have dispersed.
    I will miss our nightly visits.
    I believe i’m going to be helping out with rehab and hibernating soon so that will be interesting and rewarding.
