    I spotted this year’s hedgehog foraging about in the flower border at 0850 this morning. Is that normal given sunrise was around 0430? I’m sure it was the same hedgehog that’s been regularly visiting the feeding station each night (but is different from last year’s visitor which was much larger and the jury’s out on whether or not it’s using the hedgehog house). I’m no expert, but I wonder given the hog’s smaller appearance, whether it’s a female – is that possible? It seems to have plenty of energy and is in no way lethargic. Would love to read your views/advice. Thank you. Susan


    You do see hogs out and about in daylight at this time if the year. The nights are shorter and nursing mothers can go foraging at different times. The advice is that as long as they are not obviously sick or injured and are moving purposefully then they are probably ok and just need someone to monitor them and only call a rescue centre if this changes.
