Wildlife Trail Camera - 10.7.2017


Hedgehog cam - Night of 8.7.2017

#hogblog

Last night's #hogblog, from the garden

It's getting hard to tell between Johnno and Jo. They are both similar sizes, and now that Jo's paint mark is starting to fade a little on her backside it's getting even harder to tell them apart, however I think it was Johnno in the garden last night. He certainly tends to be out early into the dawn hours - as was in this video clip.

I notice he (if it is in fact Johnno?) has a tic behind his ear. I'll have to pop out on evening and see if I can get that off for him, with my tic-twister :)

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, 'Ark wildlife' hedgehog food, dried mealworm, peanuts and of course a fresh bowl of water :)

Hope you enjoy the short clip!
