    We’ve lived in our house for 11 years. We have a large garden with hedges as boundaries. Right away we noticed at least 2 hedgehogs living in and around the garden. This summer we noticed our current resident hog had attracted a mate. They spent time in the garden together for most of the spring and summer. Around the middle of September we saw our original hog with 3 babies. It was so wonderful to see them. Since then we have 1 baby and our original hog (who we assume is Mama) left. the baby is a goodly size and feeds everyday. We don’t know if the other 2 have gone off or died. But we’re very proud parents.

    Hi snug

    It’s lovely to hear about the hogs there. Sadly, hoglets do have a fairly high mortality rate, but some hoglets do tend to begin to explore further afield when they grow up a bit, so it could be that.

    Glad to hear the hoglet still visiting is a good size. Some hogs, hoglets in particular, decide not to hibernate and if that happens, just continue to offer food. I have had a couple here in the past (different years) and they continued to visit even on the coldest nights and continued to put on weight through the winter.

    Fingers crossed for a successful hibernation time for all of the hogs. Good luck.
