    Hello I’ve just found this web site and joined. We have had hedgehog visitors ever since we moved here in 1999, we have a hole in our back fence and another in the gate between the garden and the front of our house, so a through road, originally for our cats and were thrilled to see hedgehogs using them too. At present we have 5, or possibly more, who come every evening/night as we put out food and water for them. The winter before this we set up ‘hedgehog hotel’ as we had a small one and were worried about her surviving hibernation, she lived in the hotel popping out to eat occasionally and she did survive! We are almost sure she still comes amongst the others, there seems to be 3 who come together and another 2 who come together. Hedgehogs are fascinating!

    Hi kattaddorra

    Welcome to the Forum. Lovely to hear about the hogs there. Nice that you have had hogs regularly visiting for so long. The little one may not have hibernated properly that year. Two years running now, I have had a hoglet who hasn’t hibernated. In both cases they visited every night except when unable to because of snow! We seem to be hearing of hogs not hibernating more often these days. The one this year actually did quite a lot of foraging, even in the winter. If the hog there was a she it’s quite possible she would still be visiting. I have found, here, that the male youngsters tend to move further afield, but the females seem more likely to stay in the area.

    You’re absolutely right – hogs are fascinating – there’s always something new to learn about them.
