Sure is jacksparrow. That was the very early hours of Saturday morning. Saturday night-Sunday only one hedgehog turned up and most of the food not eaten. Just have to hope that the badger don`t turn up again. Have put an extra camera out in the garden tonight.

Do you know how Brock is gaining access to your garden and is it possible to make it more difficult? I have a vague recollection of you having visits from Brock in the past and you managed to exclude him.

Yes that is right jacksparrow. Several years ago now the trail cam picked up a juvenile. Came in three nights in a row. The last night i happen to see it and shouted, and it never came back. Hard to tell where it is coming in from, but could well be by front door. It could possibly get in under the ranch type fencing. Is where hedgehogs come in to the front door feeder as well.
But it has not been back, and Sunday night Monday morning two hedgehogs turned up. One was quite small, or just out of hibernation, so had lost weight. Put out extras tonight.

I can't make my mind up whether it is good news or bad news when you have a Badger to show us. :shrug: :badger:

It is hard to say JS, there is no doubt they are lovely creatures, and so close to front door.
