    Brilliant news, nancaz2325, although sad to hear about the one on the road. Don’t forget to enter the poor hog on the Big Hedgehog Map. Hope this one stays out of trouble.


    @Nic how do i find the map.

    Hi nancaz2325

    Sorry, should have said. Via the home page of Hedgehog Street. I know it’s a sad thing to have to do, but when I found one here, I thought, at least it’s existence was recorded and hopefully the information will help other hogs.

    You can put any live ones you see on it too.


    We had 3 on garden last night . was lovely.

    Good to hear. I’ve had some back from hibernation here too. Always lovely to see more returning.


    Hi all. Bertie the hedgehog is back from hibernation……and he’s brought a friend with him! Not sure if ‘friend’ is really the right word as Bertie nudges him/her out of the way and I haven’t seen them together since one night last week. I’m fairly sure the second one (Bertha/Basil?) is still visiting our feeding box as he/she seems to have two slightly paler patches on his/her back. I’m sure it will soon become clear whether he/she is friend or foe! Bertie was so small when I found him in our garden 18 months ago and he didn’t hibernate at all winter 17/18 so I kept my fingers crossed that he was hibernating when he didn’t turn up on my camera for his usual bedtime feed one night last autumn. All winter I’ve been wondering whether he would come back ok. He’s putting on the pounds and seems really well.

    HI slugfest

    Glad to hear that Bertie is back safe and sound. Hedgehogs aren’t known for having friends! But males will tolerate females and youngsters, but usually not other males. Are you absolutely certain Bertie is a male?

    Hope they all continue to do well – friends or otherwise!
