    Decided I would continue to put food down this year, just a little to see if any HH came. Since beginning of Jan, I have found my visitors are eating more and more. Unless the word is getting around!
    Meaty wet cat food and Brinvale`s HH biscuits mixed together – they are now eating 3 sachets a night. My camera shows – no rats – no foxes – just hedgehogs of all sizes. Now I’m using two feedings stations
    1. an old wooden composter
    2. a large plastic, fox proof container.
    Both with an entrance & an exit to avoid any grunting, pushing & shoving!

    I live in Bexley Borough, near a once lovely wooded area which is gradually being cleared by humans.

    Hi Jenny

    There do seem to be more hogs deciding not to hibernate these days, so a very good idea to leave food out for them.

    Sad about the wooded area. It would be good if people could plant trees and shrubs in their gardens to make up (in a small way) for what is lost.

    Keep up the good work!
