We have had a hedghog visit our garden over the last month and decided to build him a hedgehog home. we have been feeding him meal woms and catfood as suggested with some bird food and sultanas and he had become quite a regular character as my partner and i watched him through our patio doors only feet away. Over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of November we had not seen him, then sadly we found him dead on our front garden. There was no obvious cause and he looked in perfect condition. A sad day for us. One less of these charming little characters. The only thing we can think of is poison in some form from another from a garden he visited.

Iwas called to rescue this hedgehog during the hottest day of the year and when i found it she was grubbing in the grass. My first reaction was that she was in distress and needed care so we took her back to our rescue centre were she drank large amounts of water and ate piles of food. The following day we released her as she was up to weight.. Yesterday i had a walk up into the village and had a conversation with two artists who were painting and they informed me that a hedgehog had just gone past in all due haste. This started the big search in which I spent the rest of the day following other sightings, to no avail.Lying in bed last night it dawned on me who this hedgehog was it was Squeak who we had rescued last year after his mother had died along with another. Now Squeak was no ordinary hog as he slept at night and came out during the day I thought tht we had cured that habit, so now we have a hoh thatwanders around the village in daylight

Hedgehog itself not actually seen. However one has left faeces on my path going into the back garden and on the front lawn on at least 2 occasions recently. So it appears to be spending some time here.

Champany Fields, opposite an area of hedges, running to the railway line.

My garden might be wildlife-friendly but I can't imagine many other people's are around here. I don't fancy its chances as my next door neighbour uses slug pellets.

My garden backs on to several other gardens. Most are divided by fences and hedges, but some have concrete based fences. I don't use any pesticides and definitely not slug pellets. The bottom of my garden is a little bit 'wild' with lots of bushes.
In my garden most nights - it comes down the path to my patio where I put out dried mealworms next to the water dish. Sometimes there are two - one large and one smaller one. They have visiting all through the summer. I have also put hedgehog house at the top of the garden (under some bushes) last winter.

We have quite a mature garden, with lots of shrubs, trees and ground covers, the hedgehog was found by my dogs as i believe we accidentally covered up his entry into our garden when we did some work the day before. We found his little tunnel under the fence, un covered it and he went merrily on his way back though the fence into next doors garden.
No 5, travelling between gardens heading back towards woodlands.Mytchet, Glenmount RoadMy dogs are seen frequenting the location where he was found on occasion, i believe when the hedgehogs been in for a visit at night the scent is left there. So i have probably had him back a few times each week.

At the bottom of a muddy track where water runs off farmers fields where I suspect manure and pesticides are used.
I heard some nursery staff one a smoke break talking about it on the other side of the fence, they were prodding it with a stick and wondering why it wasn't moving. I moved it into my garden in a box next to the compost and moved to reveal loads of worms for it and went online to seek further advice but when I went back 10mins later it had disappeared. I have an open but raised front garden and an enclosed back garden, with a hole in the bottom of the fence . I never use any pesticides or slug pellets so I was going to knock a hole in the wall at the other end to open it up to hedgehogs but I spoke to someone who rescues hedgehogs sometime ago who said they may want a space for one that couldn't be let into the wild. Coincidently; as I'd not heard from her and have recently seen hedgehogs in the area, I have been asking my son to help me break the hole through a wall, and he promised to do it this evening.

I don't use pesticides in my garden. I saw a larger hedgehog in my garden during the summer, so I stopped striming the edges of my garden and left an area of bushes to go wild for him. Now I've had the tiny one in my garden this week.
He was very small, wish I had taken him in now and called someone. He was fit and fast though.

Has been seen feeding on left over bird food on the last two evenings, not sure if it is just visiting or living in the hog house at the bottom of the garden. Doubtful it has been around over the summer due to the amount of slugs in the garden, when using slug pellets only use Growing Success ones. Once regular visitors but not now seen for some years until the other evening, hope it styas.

Horatio the hog which we were asked by the vets to care for, it had been given a clean bill of health at the vets, started giving us cause for concern as it was not eating or drinking.
We returned back to the vets for a further opinion and it was found to have multiple fractures to his jaw and we had no option but to put him to sleep.
This confirmed to me that vets have very little knowledge about hedgehogs, but on our second visit we found a vet who knew her stuff and was nearly in tears when she saw the little fellow.
If you have to take a hog to the vets please make sure that they understand hedgehogs as in our case it only prolonged this poor fellows suffering

One if the hedgehogs was Buttercup as I could make out the remnants of yellow nail varnish on his rear end. The other was a slightly smaller unmarked hedgehog. They were both sharing the same feeding bowl. They both scuttled off when I went out so I put out another 2 full bowls of meal worms for them to tempt them back.

Our orchard and garden have not had any pesiticides etc on them for the past 30 years, as we like to be as organic as possible.

We have noticed the droppings of hedgehogs around the property for many years but only occasionally see them.

It was lovely seeing this one when we took our dog out before bedtime.

Surprised to see hog in garden about month ago - not seen any in 5 years. Started to put food out in feeding station which has been eaten every night. Made hogitat shelter from old bricks and left straw outside - this has been taken in a and nest made. Hog came out of it briefly on Sunday morning, so somewhat concerned, though it was for 2 minutes and it went back in and has been feeding at night as usual. Keeping a close eye - suspect may be juvenile. Saw one feeding this evening in feeding station - eating well and plenty. Not used to seeing them so trying to determine age from pics and advice from friends. May try to catch and weigh. At work now so will not know if coming out in day until weekend but have asked neighbours to keep an eye out if they see it in their garden in day and to let me know.

Our large back garden at the edge of woodland area.
I call the hedgehog Blue, because it has blue paint or stain on his spikes, so could have a some point been in captivity and released back to the wild. Blue is not quite full grown perhaps 3/4 grown. Blue is sighted out in the day as well as in the night, seems healthy, happy and busy munching food so I assume he getting ready for hibernation, I put down some cat biscuits when I see Blue.

Had a hedgehog here since 2013. Not seen it since last winter but a new, smaller one has turned up this week in our garden. They can get in and out through two barred gates. We have a log pile that could be serving as winter quarters but don't feed them as our collie would eat the food!

Limited pesticide use, couple of log piles and large shrubs providing cover. Leaves from silver birch tend to be left on flower beds. Fully fenced, but must be a gap towards the back of the garden, probably behind shed. Hedgehog was sighted on patio.
Left some food, but hard to know if cats or hedgehog ate it. Left more food the following night in a covered area that the cats cannot access, but this does not appear to have been eaten. We have purchased a hedgehog house in the hopes he will come back!!

The hedgehog was ill, it was lethargic, not moving with its head on one side on the ground and it was whimpering. It didn't struggle when we picked it up. When it was safely in the box it seemed more alert but it also had breathing difficulties. Took it to Vets4Pets who told me they would get to save it but sadly had to euthanise due to its condition. Have seen hedgehogs routinely round here and on the garden in previous years but they are rarely seen now.

Small back garden with lots of close shrubbery cover, 8+ bird feeders, open gate entrance/exit. No pesticides used - left as natural as possible to encourage wildlife.
No food provided but hedgehogs feed well naturally here with plentiful food supply.
A Hedgehog was first noticed at 12.30pm on thursday 28th April 2016 by my back door step. Then a Trail camera was installed and I have been taking short HD videos almost every night since. Almost 100 videos now amassed so far - mainly singleton sightings seen at once; but on 2 different nights I did manage to capture 2 hedgehogs in view at once ( first occasion wed 25th may, 11.30pm) . Some videos show that cats and hedgehogs ignore each other. On one night the hedgehog also ignored the food that I put out (pedigree chum and crushed cat biscuits) which was then eaten by one of the 3 or 4 cats that visit nightly. I then tried dried mealworms and these were also ignored. I then stopped providing food.
Additionally, I have videos of hedgehog, cat/s and wood mouse/mice all caught on camera together. I also have some flash photos (jpegs) taken of the hedgehog/s that you might like to put on the website. You may also wish to show one or two videos as well (each 45 secs. duration). Please advise.
My hedgehog/s have been recorded out and about at any time between 9.20pm and 3.45am but no set pattern/time.
The Video taken on thursday 2nd june 2016 (i.e. early this morning, shows a brief encounter, with the more submissive hedgehog, 'huffling' and slowly backing away in order to avoid a confrontation/fight. Possiblly 2 males then, but maybe a female indicating that she is not quite ready for breeding?

In my back garden. It was quite literally basking in the sunshine sound asleep. Stayed asleep for a good half an hour and on waking crept under a hedge in my garden. It was probably the biggest hedgehog I have seen in my seventy years. It was probably a good ten inches in length. Long may it remain in my garden.

We have quite long gardens north of our houses, established in the 1960s, a mix of lawns, borders, shrubs, trees, veg. plots. The bottom of my garden has an old hawthorn hedge and is now left semi-wild with a ground cover of comfrey, nettles, sloes and big shrubs. We try to avoid using pesticides and insecticides. There are a lot of slugs around!

I hope this info. is useful even if the hog watch survey is over. Is there another organisation that would like this info?
There were 2 hedgehogs, one larger than the other. I saw a movement and heard snuffling when I opened the back door to see where my cat was. I got my torch and saw the 2 hedgehogs on the lawn about 3 metres away. They were nose to nose circling round and snuffling - is that behaviour to do with mating? I knew our resident hedgehog was back because I saw the black poo trails on the lawn last week. My next door neighbours have a couple of hides for hedgehogs to overwinter, but hadn't see anything. I last saw a large one in the autumn scurrying about in our front gardens at about the same time of night.

Outside my back door early this morning, on the path in my back garden at 119 Green Road, S36 6BG.
I was just putting out the milk bottles for my milklady and nearly trod on it (close to the mat).
Just one, adult, very much alive. Took a photo with my iphone. Went to to fetch my better camera with flash but it had gone out of sight when I came back (only a couple of minutes). Outside temperature 2.8 degC. Conditions wet and very cold, no breeze but no frost at that point.
Tonight, I will put out some suitable food for it. ie. crushed cat biscuits and some meaty dog food. Water is already available.

I've had them many times before but not seen one in my garden since aug 2014.
Previous hedgehogs (including a family of 2 adults and one youngster) were feeding on the stuff ( including fatball bits that had fallen from the feeders onto the crazy paving stone.

No pesticides, no slug pellets, very small rear garden, very wildlife friendly, with lots of shrub cover, no lawn but loads of earthworms.
Open gate access in and out of garden but garden boundary is fence, dry stone wall and hedge.
Lots of birds (av. 12 species) and 15 feeders. Resident wood mice.
I had an overwintering Blackcap Warbler for 3 months this (quite mild) winter.
Hedgehog may have hibernated here over the winter?

Tonight first time actually sighted although think has been around last couple of nights as when letting dogs out ( tiny Yorkshire terriers! ) they have run round sniffing as if looking for something. Think probably been eating up sunflower hearts & mealworms round bird table. Put out some of Yorkies' dried dog food ( advised on Willow Hedgehog Rescue web site ) then watched from conservatory. After a while came out of flower bed to feed. Didn't move away when took out dish of fresh water

this hedgehog lives in or around the back garden of a quiet bungalow that I rented last summer with other gardens, the playing field and woods behind. The garden was quite untended and still had hedges and trees, The garden had an orchard at the bottom with fallen apples and plums and lots of hedges and wood piles etc. It is quite a big, healthy looking hog and as long as it sticks to the back and doesn't go near the road at the front, it should remain safe and with a plentiful food supply, though someone new has just bought the bungalow and I fear they may be sanitising the garden with hard paving and fences! Such a shame. However, that garden backs onto others, including mine, which I like to keep natural and wildlife friendly, so hopefully it will move in with mex

It made a beeline for the mealworms which I had just put out in the hedgehog "house"in our front garden. No pesticides are used and the garden is largely unmanaged except for lawn cutting. There is plenty of shrub cover in the border and ways for a hedgehog to travel between gardens.
Have only seen in the garden once, but mealworms have been put out at dusk and have been consumed every night for the past few weeks, presumably by above hedgehog.Have also seen a hedgehog two gardens away a few weeks ago so it may be the same one.

Earlier in the day I had noticed what I believe to be hedgehog droppings on the 'lawn'. Most years I see a hedgehog here once or twice, and droppings more often, but this is the first time this year and I have not seen one since.

Watfrd The hedgehog was in our garden on Villiers Road. Watford. It was large and in good health. Our puppy found it and got his nose prickled. A lesson learned. Both were ok after the encounter with each other. We took a photo of it and then left it alone.

Back garden. 100 foot long. No pesticides used. Everything planted is based around wildlife. Insect houses a small pond. Native hedging. Compost piles that don't get disturbed much. Will be adding a small meadow.
We don't really go down the garden at night time so don't know if the hedgehog visits regularly. We did have a family come into the garden a few years ago. But haven't seen anything near our back door since. We only know of this one because of the dog. I will keep a look out now and report any sightings.

I've only seen one but my neighbour said she heard a lot of noise in the garden the other evening so I'm wondering if it had a mate? The hedgehog is in the feeding box every evening around 9-30 and must come and visit again later as I have a feeding dish on the patio also and that's always empty in the morning. There are always several poos in the garden also.

Habitat: at the side of the garage where there is a wisteria and lots of leaf litter. Unfortunately there is a low wall and I have placed redundant roof tiles to help them get up the step because I was alerted to their presence by a calling note which now I know is a young hedgehog! First hedgehogs I have seen in ages and our back garden is adjacent to a field and ideal habitat I would have thought.
Mother and three youngsters separated by the low wall. but she got up and went to the one that had been calling out. Put some tiles down to facilitate access and left them to watch the tennis! One clambered up and joined mum Just been down and seen a youngster. Are they OK do you think because there they were in broad daylight?

Their habitat is our half acre garden, we don't use any slug pellets only natural,things to deter slugs because we know that our hedgehogs will die if they eat them. They have plenty of places to hide in our garden as it's a cottage style garden, quite laid back.
in our garden every night. It's usually just one hedgehog but a couple of weeks ago we saw two feeding together.We feed our hedgehog every night with hedgehog biscuits and dried mealworms. We have seen two feeding together but now only one. We don't know if one has died or if it's the two hedgehogs alternating. We think the hedgehog waits for us to put their food out because it comes almost immediately after we've put it down. We always give it fresh water as well because I know they can get dehydrated. Also last year about 6 months ago I found a small hedgehog out in the daytime really wobbly not looking well, so I took it to the hedghog man in Royston but it sadly died 2 days later.

A feeding station in a corner of the garden between bushes and the hedge into the wood. Also near our pond.

Also caught it on camera the next night 2014-11-04 at 2:24 and 2:52
t was a tight sqeeze as I had narrowed the entrance to prevent a local cat from getting in.

There are 3 cats that regularly patrol our garden (they come from across the road)We know it uses the pond as once it fell in and had to be rescued as we'd netted the pond - the netting is now rearranges so it can drink and get out if it falls in.

I have some videos of it if you want them. Hope to get some better At the back of our garden in Silkstone Common where it backs onto Orcones over the next few days. I also have some from Jan/Feb 2014

Garden at the back but looking out on to another larger garden and hedgerows etc where we think the hedgehog family live leaving them only a short distance to come to our garden every night to feed - the feeding area is also covered up very well in summer with summer trees, flowers and general foliage growth for the hedgehog privacy. We can see the family by looking out of our kitchen window
Seen another baby at the back of our house when feeding time for hedgehogs.Sometimes 3 come at once but now seen 2 adults regular and larger baby and now a smaller baby - so think I have a family of 4hedgehogs who we feed regularly with several courses and water every night.
Family Stocksbridgevisit anytime from 2130hrs onward and are already waiting for me sometimes when I put their food out in the bushes. Continue to look after the hedgehog family and may they grow into a sizeable family unit.

There is a small woodland which is extremely overgrown with brambles.
walk our dogs around the swimming baths every night and have done so for a number of years. In 2012 I saw a number of hedgehogs almost every night during the summer and autumn months. In 2013, I did not see any.
In 2014, there are the following.
1 large which I take to me a male.
1 slightly smaller which I take to be the female.
At least one or may be two smaller.I have put several times a week, however this year it has been a little hit and miss, one week it is every night, and other week not at all.
