Wildlife Trail Camera - 25.3.2019
Hedgehog cam - Night of 24.3.2019
Last night’s hogblog video, filmed in the back garden
As spring is certainly upon us, and these little guys are waking up from hibernation, it’ll be nice to see them more and more during the evening times.
This was filmed at just one of my feeding points (the majority of which are sheltered, to prevent the foods getting eaten by fox and cats etc).
Even though it’s quite wet out there, hedgehogs still very much appreciate a bowl of fresh water each night, along with their food – of which I feed Spikes Semi-moist hedgehog specific food. Hedgehogs will almost certainly always find natural foods, however, a bowl of fresh water can be a life saver during dry times!

Hedgehogs really appreciate fresh water, especially in this warm weather. Put a bowl out for them in the evening, and they'll love it. Hopefully they'll become regular visitors for you, in your garden :)
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, and of course fresh bowl's of water :)
Please note: Do NOT feed mealworm. Mealworm, and even sunflower hearts, in large amounts contributes to Metabolic bone disease in hedgehogs.
