We've had our hedgehogs for over a year now, my favourite is Wilhelmina. She is always the first to wake up, she comes onto the garden looking for treats I have left her before having a drink of water down at the lake. I can just about get her to feed from my hand. I always know it's her as she has a funny upturned nose. She then scurries off in search of grubs.
We have recently had 9 more delivered. We have had to keep them in the garages for about a week because of bad weather and they had not hibernated so weren't wintered. We kept them fed and watered and took a few pics. A few days ago we opened the doors and let them run for freedom. They didn't want to leave as they thought the garage made a good house. A few stayed behind or went back in, it took a few days for them all to decide to go outside. I will be keeping my eye out for them over the next few months before it gets too dark and it's time for my bed. Last night we saw a few eating the cat biscuits. Mum took a picture.
We are hoping that as the first batch have been here for a year and settled nicely that there may be some babies soon.
I will be in touch soon
