Hedgehog feeding up after a long hibernation

Hedgehog in feeding station Nurturng Nature

Very nice to see a hedgehog in my garden so early in the year. I realise it must have hibernated not too far away… be interesting to find out!

The peanut butter mixture proved very popular with dried mealworms, crushed sunflower hearts and moistened in water before being put out.

4th consequtive night now.. long may it continue!

It was nice to get pretty close to the hedgehog at it used the feeding station and I could film it without it running away!

No hedgehogs in your garden? Do you have hedgehog no go areas?

Hi George
Tips please!!! Rescued hog last night on our late dog walk. In the gutter on our busy main road!! Took hog home, feed on tripe dog food mixed with sugar free muesli, water. Eaten almost all of this. He’s in a safe place in small covered area In Our garden. Made up box with wood chip hay, leaves etc which hog didn’t use!! Fairly good weight should I try and keep it ? Reluctant to release in our garden in view of the river.

Hi Marian, is it injured? If so take it to your nearest hedgehog carer. If not I would release it in a local woodland away from roads!! Thanks for sharing. Cheers, George
