    Wife saw a small hedgehog out on front lawn this afternoon, he was bigger than an apple and seemed well so we have him some food and water and left him to his own devices.
    Went out in garden tonight with youngest daughter and found a large and medium hedgehog together, more exploring and came across what appeared to be the small one from this afternoon.
    We have gone from one hog last year to three, well pleased

    Hi decepticon

    Glad to hear that you have some hogs there.

    I hope the little hog was ok. Hopefully there won’t be a re-occurance, but just in case – Normally if you find a hog out in the open in the daytime, just sitting there or looking as if it’s sunbathing, it might need help from a carer. If you find one again in such circumstances, the best thing to do is contact your local carer – you can explain all the facts to them – and take their advice. You can get contact details of your nearest carer by ringing 01584 890801 (number also at the bottom left of this page).

    It’s a good idea to leave water available for the hogs all day every day. Wide but shallow plant saucers are ideal for this. The ones I use are from about 8 inches across – hogs are very good at tipping up the smaller ones! But not so deep that a hoglet could get trapped in them.

    Good luck and happy hog watching!
