Last September when our daytime hedgehog mate turned up, it was suggested I make a hedgehog box. Having done so, I was advised by my grand daughter that it wasn't up to the task, so a second one was made which was acceptable.
It was unused through the winter, but we were still really pleased when hedgie showed up mid February, still sticking to his daytime visits. on reasonable days he turns up looking for his food, although one day it was 7.30am.
Yesterday a friend visited and I noticed her dog paying attention to the hedgehog home, taking a look, there inside was the hedgehog, was I pleased. This afternoon when he was down having a snack, I thought I would check the box and found the hedgehog was still inside, so we have two, at least.
After so long never seeing any, how wonderful to have two around.
The frogs, having been active for some time finally have produced some frogspawn, and now can't seem to stop. Great tits looking in one of the nest boxes. The three new sparrow boxes are up and in the process of making some swift boxes, hopefully a few will be successful.
