Good to mention that  AnniD   ... ours only get a very few mealworms amongst the rest of their meal.  


And while they love Spikes Moist hedgehog food they leave Spikes Dried alone, hardly even a nibble.  Fussy things

The hedgehogs who visit our garden like this https://fetch.co.uk/spikes-tasty-semi-moist-hedgehog-food-550g-96939011?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4Iym-72Y1QIVRbvtCh2h3gwPEAQYASABEgLnufD_BwE 


we sometimes add some sunflower hearts, chopped peanuts, dried mealworms, dried banana chips ... but not too much as they can be bad for their teeth.


Moist chicken based cat food is also suitable.  Not the sort with jelly

Gorgeous Papi Joe ... haven't seen a Cinnabar Moth caterpillar for a few years now ... the numbers are declining rapidly ... probably due to the war being waged on ragwort which is their main food plant.

Weird potatoes

Ah ... they follow the flowers and look like tomatoes.  They are poisonous however, so best removed in case children think they're tomatoes ... and it'll let the plants put their energy into producing spuds.
