I live in the city of Worcester and have many hedgehog visiting my garden on a nightly basis. I feed them hedgehog food (Spikes semi-moist is there favourite at the moment), sunflower seeds and dried and live mealworms. I split the food over three feeding stations to try and avoid fighting. Upturned plastic crates with a 10cm sguare cut out are ideal and stop cats but not blackbirds eating the food. I also have three hedgehog houses in the garden but it is difficult to tell if they are being used.
I rarely see them both there is always their mess and I also have a motion sensor camera that films them in the dark. I often have 30 to 40 films per night. I have always fed the birds and I think they started to visit my garden to feed under the bird feeders.
