Hi all, I was thrilled when I reviewed my trailcam photos from Friday night - it looks like I have a new baby hedgehog at the watering hole.

Mummy (I assume) hog:

and hoglet:


Just off out to collect memory card for last night to see if there are more photos.

That's wonderful!

We have had 2 fatalities on the roads round here in the past week and I only saw 1 hog in the past couple of days,normally have 3-4 each night so am a bit worried.

Trail cam will go out again tonight!

It's great to see a hedgehog success!!!

They've chosen your garden for a reason and kudos to you Sir for creating a habitat they're breeding in!

Super news. Bob...and great to see the little hoglet

Dave, the garden has been pesticide free for several years now and I actively encourage wildlife by having lots of 'untidy' areas and piles of wood etc., so there's food & cover.  I'm sure that's one of the main reasons.  Fresh water every night too which is heavily used by the birds during the day.

They were both back again last night - Mum first then hoglet 10 minutes later:

How wonderful Bob 😀 

We've had a hog visiting us for a couple of months now and 2 nights ago couldn't believe it when it was joined by another one at our back door for the nightly visit to hog biscuits & water!  It would seem from the circling, stalking & much snuffling there's a mating ritual in progress!!  Crossing fingers for hoglets 😊

Ooh, let's hope so Fifs!  They can get quite loud when 'in the mood' can't they!
