Help Save The Hedgehogs

Posted: Today at 07:14

There are 3 feeding cafes around the garden, so when I found a Hedgehog eating bread off the bird tray, I wondered why, I checked and  all the cafes were full.


So now I clear the bird tray of bread and at night put out some food and water for the Hedgehog.

Celadonsusan hope the Hedgehog gets better soon.


Mine are eating dried cat food, but if it gets wet they won't eat it, as the wooden Hedgehog boxes are getting rotten. I am going to get the plastic boxes and make a hole in them.

GWRS, it's not your imagination regularly see the male Sparrow hawk, now it's the females turn to do a fly past, she's much bigger and this is in the town centre. Couple of weeks ago saw 11 Red Kites soaring above us could not believe that, never seen so many.


The Hedgehogs have taken over, I have been putting out 5 small bowls of dried cat food in the feeding stations and it's all been going, so I wanted to check yet again, it's not cats getting in. Well, it's not, 5 Hedgehogs and 3 Hoglets all finding the feeding stations. I went out last night and counted them, and then just to make sure I wasn't counting the same ones I ran round the garden with a torch, just in case they were tricking me. 


I have found that the the Hoglets struggle with feeding and drinking from bowls as they are too high, so will now put out saucers instead.


The Hedgehogs can go through holes in the fences or under the gates to roam, if they want to.

Overgrown area which is very quiet.


Then coming through the fence to the garden and the feeding boxes.

Latest news on Hoglets, there are now 3 roaming around finding the food and water, as they are still quite small I have put in some stepping stones on the steps, to halve the drop as they are quite deep steps.


The pipe in the hedgehog box stops the cats from stealing the food.

First spotted a baby Hedgehog on Wednesday night, roaming around quite happily. Then 2 larger ones came through the hole in the fence which backs on to the over grown area which is a very quiet.


All are moving fast and clear of ticks, I hate ticks, yuk


When I took the photo he/she curled up .

That poor Hedgehog and so young.


I only feed them dried meat dog biscuits which I can hear them crunching without disturbing them and water.


Keep up the good work it's so obviously needed.

Welcome Tabitharose


1Runnybeak1  have no idea what's going on.


Fairygirl yes some sort of bird cross.


Then the hedgehog house gets dragged across the flower border and onto the path. No way it's a cat, but maybe a fox or badger after the food.

That's a thought, the magpies also come down for food.


It looks like the bird has dipped its head in a tin of paint.


Don't take any notice of the washing, I don't.

Managed to get a photo of this black bird or maybe a white bird, sorry about the washing.
