Wildlife Trail Camera - 24.4.2019
Hedgehog cam - Night of 23.4.2019
Last night’s footage showing one or two different hedgehogs, and this time featuring 'Harold' - a hedgehog that I released from rehab after he lost his eye, and was brought in by somebody.
Also 'Speedy' the wood mouse has taken to giant leaps !! - as you'll see hahaha
As you can see from my footage, I like to sprinkle the ‘Spikes’ hedgehog food around on the ground, making it more natural for the hedgehogs to have to forage for their food. My fresh water supply is in the form of a bowl, which I’ve sunk into the ground just slightly above ground level
(*Scroll down to see video footage)
Hedgehogs really appreciate fresh water. Put a bowl out! - they'll love it, and hopefully become regular visitors for you :)
Hope you enjoy the short clip!

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, a few dried mealworm, few peanuts and of course fresh bowl's of water :)
Please note: Do NOT feed more than just a few (literally one or two) mealworm. Mealworm in large amounts contributes to Metabolic bone disease in hedgehogs.
Please, no more than a few mealworm, and no more than a few peanuts. Thank you...
