Your Garden Hedgehogs

Post by Willpar » Sat May 31, 2014 7:25 pm

With the lighter nights now the hedgehogs that come to my garden are a lot later. Don't seem to have many before midnight. Average is around two. But after that the garden is pretty busy until first light.

I just got home from being out elsewhere and I'd left a big coconut shell of seeds under cover in case hedgie arrived before I got home and it is now empty. There was no sign of anyone on the camera. I've seen them go straight to the covered area before and not bother with the main feeder.

My hogs know where the good stuff is to be found :)

No we ate all the meat.

They ate all the mealies, nuts and sunflower seeds. They left all the sultanas.

Hedgies on springwatch tonight: dreadful decline in 10 years.
I seem to recall us discussing the pathway gadget about a year ago. 400 sites across the country should give an interesting map.

I cannot believe how greedy one of my hogs is.
It was just after dark when I went out with half a jug of food, put most of it in the feeder tray and scattered the rest on the grass. Not an hour later I looked out and there were just some peanuts and sultanas left. No wonder I only have fat hogs.

Not yet sure if the Hedgie that made it's home just outside my back door last year has taken up home in the new place at the bottom of the garden, but the absence of slugs in the wild area is a good sign methinks.
