Wildlife Trail Camera - 21.10.2017


Hedgehog cam - Night of 20.10.2017

#hogblog

Last night's hogblog

Usual nights activity, in fact maybe even a little quiet? - only two hedgehogs, one fox and no mouse ;-) haha

What seems apparent is that one of the juvenile hedgehogs is still trying to suckle - possibly......or is just a typical playful kid, jumping on mum! lol

I've also made a more effective light diffusing panel (from commercial lighting plastic), for my black IR led's on my trial cam.

After a couple of different attempts with multiple layers of sticky-back book covering plastic, I have settled on having one layer of sticky-back covering and my plastic cover over the top of that. I now get nicely diffused light, and hardly any peaks of light at close range. Grean foliage is also now not really peaking to bright.

Hedgehogs really appreciate fresh water. Put a bowl out! - they'll love it, and hopefully become regular visitors for you :)

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 for the garden wildlife are: 'Spikes' Semi-moist hedgehog food, 'Ark wildlife' hedgehog food, dried mealworm, peanuts and of course a fresh bowl of water :)
