This may seem like a daft question, so apologies if it is. I'd love to encourage hedgehogs into our garden. It is a reasonable size with a little woody area at the far end, where we have oak trees and scots pines. A good hedge down the length of the garden 30m's worth. Is there any way we'd know if we already had hedgehogs around here, or do you just build/buy them a house and see if anything goes in ? We have a fox, and lots of wildlife / birds in the garden.
Where would we start with something like this. Don't want to feed them as I feel it should all be natural. Maybe they are out there and we just don't know...
Any advice ?
