We have had hedgehogs visiting the garden for the last three years, I think we have three in total but we only ever see two at the same time. They vary in size and that is why I think we have three. Last night each hedgehog headed straight for the water bowls as soon as they entered the garden. We have been filling them up each night, which is vitally important for them in this hot weather, what they don’t drink over night the birds have as reserve water until the bird bath is topped up in the morning.
Last night we initially had one hedgehog show and then 15mins later a second turned up. They didn’t get too close to each other but they didn’t argue. There were two hedgehogs out the front of the house the other week that were barging each other around and making a lot of noise! For some reason last night they both ran off at the same time in the same direction, I hove no idea why as nothing showed up on the camera. We do have a lot of cats who use the garden as a corridor, they generally just pass thought and don’t stop. Both hedgehogs did return not long after though.
We know that at least one of the hedgehogs gets to the garden from the road side of the house, we generally know when it arrives as our house rabbit sits and listens, facing the wall it walks next to! the other looks like it comes from the back of the garden through the fence.
