Having been aware of hedgehogs in the garden and passing through, last year I made a hedgehog house out of two wineboxes and put it in a quiet corner, surrounded by some logs and under a small acer tree. Last weekend I found my dog, trying to dig under the hog-house and getting very excited so I investigated and gently lifted the lid. The box was full of leaves so obviously there was a nest, but I didn't disturb and replaced the lid, and made the area dog proof! Since then I have put out semi-moist hedgehog food each night that has disappeared which confirms that I have a hedgehog in residence. Quite excited at the success of the homemade hog-house.
