    When I came to live at 8, The Willows, Oxspring, 6 years ago, there was no garden. There was extensive mown grass lawn all around me and there was no wildlife at all ...

    One of our dedicated Watchers has set up a camera and feeding station in her garden in Silkstone Common and has taken these brilliant videos of her hedgehog at night.

    so i made a hedgehog house thing in wood tech at school the i put it outside. i checked it every single day, a month later i thought i might be able to see one if i put some food out so i researched what food they eat and i put some cat biscuits on a plate every night and one day at 11pm i went outside with a torch and my bush rustle and half the food was gone. i moved it further down my garden by an old washing machine and i thought i could see a black figure bye the plate, i got out the torch and a hedge hog ran through my garden and went behind my washing machine by a wall but there was a smashed mirror. so my dad helped me move the washing machine and the little hedgehog ran into the bush and most days when i left a few cat biscuits out he/she came and ate them 🙂

    Our hedgehog reappeared about a week ago. Haven’t seen the actual hog but the mealworms are being eaten again, water taken, and there are clear signs: it left a poo in the food bowl one night!, and keeps knocking over the plastic water bowl. Am continuing with the mealworms until it hibernates.
