Fabulous news , 2 adults and 3 hoglets, still visiting and tonight there is one large hog in a hedgehog house, think we need to make another one !25th September 2019 at 9:23 pm #18453
That’s brilliant! You are so lucky having 3 hoglets visiting. Yes, maybe another hog house (or few) would come in handy!25th September 2019 at 11:27 pm #18456
Great news! So blessed to have so many spiked visitors .
I use to have two in my garden, although big bruiser disappeared some weeks ago. Hetty remains in her residence under the shed and for the first time tonight I had a hoglet feeding! So excited!
Happy hog watching! x26th September 2019 at 8:08 pm #18468
It is great news , we have a good sized garden and next door is a very overgrown plot , hoping they all move here as one day the piece of land will go for building 🙁
We have had a large estate that is being built on land that was overgrown for years so think they the hogs have moved across.
Contacted the building contractor several times about fencing / access for the hogs but no reply.
After several e mails over many months the planning office have replied ,saying they are aware of the hogs plight but can’t insist on builders providing hog friendly fencing. However they will visit site and see if there can be gaps left. Not expecting anything to happen , we can but try .26th September 2019 at 8:34 pm #18469
I thought the government had now made it part of planning law for developers to include holes in fences and walls for hedgehog highways? It was announced this summer, so I would keep insisting that highways have to be created in this new development.

Thanks for the info Sam1404 i have contacted developer many times without a reply . I will forward this to the planning officer who did eventually reply !!!!after several months. As this is a site already in progress i’m sure there will be a loophole to exclude them . I will keep on pestering them 🙂27th September 2019 at 7:47 am #18478
Good luck, probably best to send to the planning officer anyway as they can surely put pressure on the developer to comply with planning law. Keep us posted on how it goes!
