We have had hedgehogs visiting our garden for a couple of years now and have put dried hedgehog food on a saucer, only a couple of feet away from our conservatory door. We get a brilliant view of them when they arrive at dusk as, with their poor eyesight they cant see us, and we have seen some strange antics like you mention Tim. Certainly a lot of snuffling when there are 2 of them in the same area, a bit of a stand-off maybe, but it could be a courtship ritual. Once when 2 arrived at the saucer at the same time, the saucer (on gravel) was, believe it or not, up on end with a hedegehog on either side, snuffling!
