Please be aware that in the late autumn/early winter healthy well-developed hedgehogs of good weight do venture out during daylight hours to gather dry leaves etc to make their hibernacula - these hedgehogs do not need rescuing. They do this as frequently the nightime hours at that time of year are damp. We've watched hedgehogs gathering leaves in our garden on dry days this autumn.
That is just lovely Lynr. If you can get a pic I'm sure everyone would love to see it
Brilliant Lyn - we have the same thing happening - we find they like chopped peanuts and pieces of banana chip too (not too much banana, bad for their teeth)
Isn't it lovely watching them?
Hi -I have a hedgehog in my garden too and I'm feeding him on small amounts
of dog food chopped up small. I love to see his little nose go up to sniff out
where I've put the dish. He is so quiet - I almost never see him until he reaches
the dish - he's like a little shadow slipping over the lawn. I think it's a "he" as
there's no sign of babies, but I'm not sure. I think he's the only one I have as I
spend quite a long time watching him come and go from the garden.
