The white box as you call it placi is a feeder. It came with the fat balls that i bought, so thought i would make use of it. The white bit is the entrance, made with a piece of UPVC fence post. Glued on with an electric glue gun. The downside is that it condensates and gets water on the floor. Don't think i will keep it for long. The recycle bin comes to mind.

Nice to see them out and about again, Willpar :D
That looks to be a good feeder; I wonder if any side holes would make a difference to the condensation :hedgehog:

Hi Nuthatch, probably insulation might be better. But for the moment it will have to stay in situ. Due to a short bit of video that i got last night.

Doorcam hedgehog has decided to take material into the other feeder. It already has nesting material in it from last autumn. I was going to clear it all out and disinfect it and return back to a feeder. Will have to put that on ice now. But what i never noticed right away was left of the entrance of plastic feeder. There is another hedgehog there trying not to be noticed by the other hedgehog. So now i have two out and about.

Door cam spotted another hedgehog last night. Smaller one this time, could be one of last years juveniles.
