What a great idea to ‘Gang up to make where you live hedgehog friendly.’ With numbers in decline, making small changes to our garden boundaries can create wildlife corridors that will benefit the birds and wildlife that visit our gardens. Chatting to neighbours about this is a good place to start. It would be brilliant… Read More Hedgehog Street & visits
For sometime now I have wondered this. At this time of year with the garden full of lush foliage the reality is that hedgehogs are very well camouflaged. Being predominately brown in colour they blend in beautifully with any exposed soil below plants. During the day we can see that our garden plants attract many… Read More Are hedgehogs still visiting?
Sorry, I may shamelessly upset you with this post. Pre blog I was completely ignorant on this. Hedgehog searches bring many visitors to my blog so I feel perhaps I should highlight images that shocked and upset me this morning… for the sake of these endangered wild animals. To help power through a growing ironing… Read More Something ugly for the weekend
Maybe just a few minutes more? Beneath a warm duvet of dried leaves and hay, this hedgehog is making it look like a thought to go out into the night air. We’re heading towards the end of September and in the ten days since the video above was taken the nights have turned a little… Read More Who’s hogging the covers?
There’s been a whole load o’ shakin’ goin’ on in da house! Since the first visits seen via a camera in our hedgehog house it has rained heavily in the evenings. A larger hedgehog has been visiting but so far no more napping has been seen… Crushed peanuts and their skins have been sticking to… Read More Raindrops keep falling on the hogs
Finally, after much anticipation and finger crossing, we have seen the first images of a hedgehog exploring inside my daughter’s Hedgehog House (made for school exam project). I really didn’t believe my luck last night as I looked in at a perfect time… just as one arrived! The record button was quickly activated and I… Read More Sh… hedgehog napping
Let’s hear it for birds and wildlife visiting our jungle gardens at this time of year! One bird that has being catching my eye has been a lonesome Collared dove… but not the one above which I’m showing for comparison. Here’s the one below that I’ve been watching. It has been sitting around the garden… Read More Hear and there
How about a little less chat and some action instead for this month’s blooms? Or… do you fancy seeing my baby photos first? Decisions, decisions… so many garden stories…. have you time for a cuppa? Go on… this one’s an easy read. Okay… are you sitting comfortably? Let’s begin with one of the volunteers that… Read More Blooms and babies
Have you ever wondered if hedgehogs visit your garden? Would you like to see them? A quite wander around your garden just as it starts to get dark at this time of year will give you just enough light to perhaps see them with nose on the ground searching for tasty bites. A still night… Read More Do hedgehogs visit your garden?
The cold snap that we are having here is sending gardener’s into action to protect plants for the winter – especially ones new to the garden. Recently I’ve had comments on my posting from last year on what I do with my Gunnera. However, one comment has sparked this extra posting: “…..it’s stopped raining but… Read More Cold nights for plants, ponds and hedgehogs
