I've become used to seeing the occasional, dimly lit hog in the early hours but this one surprised us by putting in an appearance in broad daylight yesterday evening. After snuffling round the "wildflower" border for a while (s)he disappeared back under the fence from whence (s)he had arrived.
I made a hedgehog house last year and placed it under bushes at the end of the garden. Each night now I am visited by two hedgehogs and so I have started to leave out purchased hog food (which they eat every night) and fresh water . They are both fairly small and I cannot decide if they are related or not. When do hedgehogs breed? I am hoping that these hedgehogs are a breeding pair.
