Do you put food down in the covered patio Jacksparrow or down in the garden?

Always in the garden. If the weather is poor I put it under my barbecue as the cover on it provides sufficient protection from the weather and they can get to it easily :hedgehog: :)

Well, it has happened. My first hedgehog for years. The other half spotted it first. It has been in a few times and eating sunflower hearts from a ground feeder, Not enough light for a photo.

Good to hear Peragrine. Hopefully you will get more come in for a feed. At least you know now they are in the area again.

Great news Peregrine. I think the Hogs have discovered that gardens are a much safe environment than open country. They are more than welcome as far as I'm concerned. :nod: :hedgehog:

Decorate colourful.



Wonder if it will get all of the roll inside.

That's incredible, Willpar !! Nothing like a bit of insulation.

I am getting around three coming in per night. The one that tried to drag the polybags in is still there during the day. Not taken in anymore nesting material despite the fact I put some nice hay nearby. :hedgehog: :hedgehog: :hedgehog:
