    I have a hedgehog that lives under my shed and which I monitor with a wildlife camera. Prior to my starting feeding it, it would wander both the back and front gardens and beyond. Since feeding it, it now appears to wander from the shed to the adjacent feeding station and back to the shed again. Should I be concerned that my intervention appears to have restricted it’s movement and tendency to forage?


    No I wouldn’t worry about it. At this time of year their natural food starts to drop off so they may rely more on supplementary food, however you also don’t know where it goes from the back of your shed – or what it’s finding under the shed.
    As long as you’re feeding a cat or dog food then it will be fine. You are probably just helping it get the weight it needs to survive winter
