As I am housebound until the intense heat dies down I have prepared another compilation of Hoggie action from the night before last to show the differences ... as usual full screen is best as the littlest Hoggie doesn't always show well on night cam ...

Lot to learn
Hopefully in right thread this time ... transferred from 2018 thread! Oooo-er, long time since I posted on here, good news is that I have continued to have nightly visits to feeding station from a Mum & babies ... the two ( sometimes three) youngsters seem to be growing to a size compatible with successful hibernation! Watch for Foxy getting a big shock last night ...

***Very glad to see you are getting good sized youngsters feeding up for winter Wendy. MrMrs Fox certainly had a surprise when he put his nose into the box!! I wonder will it put the hedgies off now they know a fox is around, they don't make good bed companions.***
I replied ...Hi Gaynor ... did look up about relationship between urban foxes & hoggies & found this somewhat comforting post ...***Foxes sometimes attack hedgehogs, although usually adult hogs are protected by their spines. ... Urban foxes' stomachs contain hedgehog parts now and then, though this is probably because they eat roadkill. Otherwise, foxes and hedgehogs often live happily together in our cities.https://www.hedgehogstreet.org › pr...Hedgehog predators - Hedgehog Street ***
No Fox last night but did have three Hoggies at once all trying to feed from the same dish ...
