I've put a hedgehog house in my mothers large back garden, and despite rehoming one from a rescue shelter the only thing we had in the house this year was a bumblebee nest that then got raided by a wood mouse, which then set up home and raised a brood herself.
trail cameras are great, one of my aunties neighbours thought either yobs or a heron had been taking his prized (by him, not in actual price) koi carp, I set up a trail camera with help from the local wildlife trust and the thief was an otter! not bad seeing as there were two roads between the house and the river, god knows how it found the pond!! but apparently its becoming more common at otters move into more urban areas!
