    In Liverpool .I have wildlife friendly garden , purpose built and natural houses dotted around in the undergrowth and 4 feeding stations, numerous watering containers also in front and back garden. Last Saturday was a particularly busy night! 84 Videos on camera .Obviously not that many visiting ? .but I knew I had been having a lot. Lots of poo ….large and small and plenty of food going. I like to put enough out for any getting bullied or coming back for seconds. The ground was really hard so I suppose they struggled for natural food. I sat and watched videos and all looked well fed and good bodily condition. I have been feeding for a number of years now and always have a good crowd visiting . They know where to come if stuck , even over winter they pop across , quick munch and back to bed. Garden has a few highways and Ive been educating neighbours as best I can , and they are managing to find a way to me. I feed Royal Canin Mother and Baby , Purina one Kitten and when there are really babies Royal Canin Paediatric, all biscuits . Any problem ones Im in regular contact with a vet/nurse who specialises in hedgehogs ….I just do my best . They’re adorable .

    Hi Delta

    It sounds as if you’re doing a great job!

    Yes, hogs will make multiple visits a night to feeding stations, but whilst not as many as 84 hogs, I imagine there must be quite a few. It’s lovely to have several hogs visiting so that your can see their interactions.

    You’re also right that the very dry weather we had may have made it more difficult to find natural food. Apart from anything else, the poor earthworms come to mind!

    Well done educating the neighbours and it’s always useful knowing somewhere you can take the hogs should they get into any trouble with injuries, etc.

    Good luck. I hope you continue to enjoy the hogs’ visits. Happy hog watching!
