I was happy enough a few days to get a photo of one Hedgehog,now I have two visit together.
I had to add more food as they were really tucking In,they like sunflower hearts and suet pellets
then washed down with a drink of water
I have a feeling my wildlife food bill will be a bit higher whoops!
Awwwwww! They're absolutely adorable! I love the last pic, it's cute little tongue, drinking. I don't seem to have any hedgehogs visit my garden but in my last home lots used to come by, what a noise they'd make at night! Lol.
Great pics, love them. :)

Little Owl, hoggies are quite fond of cat food as well, wet and dry. Noisy little beasts, they sound like something a lot larger tramping through the undergrowth. The first time my ex-sister-in-law heard them in my garden she thought there was a huge beast coming to attack us. I did fall about laughing and suggested she stop watching horror movies.

Brilliant pictures Little Owl, Super to have these guys in your garden. I cant remember the last time I saw a Hedgehog! Thats a shame as when I was younger they were quite a common sight really

Aww Littleowl, they're lovely!
I wish we still had a hedgehog visit, that or at least the foxes :-(
You're very lucky and the one that's drinking is extra cute!

Last wednesday night I was making sure the shed was locked and heard a strange noise coming from the plant pots on the patio so shone the tourch to find the massive hedgehog that visits us crunching into a big snail :-)
Your pictures of them tucking into sunflower hearts and suet grains solves the mystery of why the ground feeders are moved when I come to top them up in the morning must be the hedgehog snuffling under them after the dust and bits that fall through the mesh :-)
