Should I be worried
Hi, I have a few hedgehogs coming nightly to my garden, I leave two bowls of food and four bowls of water out for them. Last night a large hedgehog came out before dark at 10pm and had some food and water, tonight the same one came out at 9.10pm and again it was still light! Question is should I be worried? I would be very grateful for some advice thank you.
Hi Granny Edie
Personally I wouldn’t be worried too much about 9 p.m. onwards at this time of year, when the days are at their longest, as long as it doesn’t get too much earlier.
We have a hedgehog that has been coming in to eat and rest for the last ten days. It comes in usually around 9.30pm to 10.30pm, although tonight it was before 8.00pm. It is very lively and virtually runs directly to the food and water. After it has eaten, it always goes inside for a few hours. We never see it leave, but it must do through the night, as the following night, he’s back walking along to the food again.
Thanks for your comments! Waiting patiently on its arrival tonight! Hopefully it doesn’t come out too early, although it’s now 8.45 so I’m not too worried!
Hi Granny Eddie,
I have a family of four hedgehogs living in my garden. This week they have all been out around 9pm. The mum comes out first then the three hoglets (I think from last year as they are smaller than her but not tiny). They all seem very healthy and are completely unphased by me and my two cats.
