We have a resident hedgehog. He/she has a house which I built (following the accepted style for the creature), and it is insulated and lined with leaves and straw. We feed it hedgehog food and there is a bowl nearby with water. The house is situated behind a tall close fence, and inside a pergoda. The hedgehog can come and go as it pleases, in a well-stocked garden. The one danger point which we unfortunately cannot do anything about, is an access lane at the rear of our property, which has claimed the life of one of our former residents when out hunting at night. But we will continue to look after any visitor, they are always welcome here.
