    :hhog:A few weeks back, at about two o'clock in the morning, my husband had heard a noise in the garden and it was a prickly little visitor. He woke me up (knowing how much I'd want to see my very first hedgehog) and so there I was on my 33rd birthday, seeing my very first hedgehog in my garden. This was a birthday to remember!

    So, we started leaving out a bowl of water, some hedgehog food and a few mealworms. And he would visit every night.

    Then we decided to buy him a little house of his own.

    And then he brought along a little friend! :wub2:

    So now we know we have at least two of these very precious creatures visiting us each night. We will continue to put out food and water for them, and hopefully they will move in to the little house, or maybe choose to hibernate in it.

    Last night we got to watch the two of them sharing the bowl of food, I managed to do a video of them on my phone but didn't want to frighten them, so didn't stay out very long or get too close. They are so cute :wub2:

        Fabulous. It's so thrilling to see them, in fact I feel quite honoured when they venture into our garden. We were lucky enough to have a new Mr & Mrs Snuffles appear only last week. Mr scuttled off when I put my camera torch on but Mrs stood her ground. Keeping fingers crossed that we may see some babies.
