Once again, last night having only one of the male hedgehogs visit, as well as a very brief visit from the wood mouse. One of the video takes showed a second hedgehog on the background, but I couldn't tell which. Poss 'SSRT 3rd' - our old male visiting hedgehog??? (That outtake is not inc. in the below video)
This hedgehog however seems to have pale quills on its head, like a bleach blonde hair style. A male, I think - from the activity given toward 'Jo' - the female visiting hedgehog
(Jo is still currently in a rescue facility because of an injured back foot, but is well on the mend now, thankfully!!)
As usual, on these hot summer evenings he drank lots. It really highlights how important fresh water is, for your garden hedgehogs!
Being a regular visitor now, I've decided name this little guy 'Johnno'
Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water. Put a bowl out! - they'll really appreciate it :)
As I'm sure you're aware, the UK hedgehog needs our help. Lost of habitat, including clean tidy gardens, less roadside hedgerows, and of course more and more development - meaning less green spaces, are all hitting our much loved little gardeners friend, the hedgehog, hard.
Why not try and do your own little bit for them. It's easy........cut an access hole in the bottom of a fence, leave a little water out, even just let a corner of your garden get messy. It all helps :)
My nightly offerings: 'Spikes' Semi-moist hedgehog food, dried mealworm, peanuts and of course a fresh bowl of water :)
