Jones Close in November!

Posted by on Nov 5, 2012 in stories | Comments Off on Jones Close in November!

My feeding station is still being visited every night and all food devoured. I am pretty sure I have a mummy hedgehog calling for food.  I am on the lookout for her babies, who of course will not make it through the winter without human intervention.

Jones Close Autumn Juvenille

Posted by on Oct 2, 2012 in stories | Comments Off on Jones Close Autumn Juvenille

I went out for my last thing in the evening ’roundup’ and noticed a hedgehog in my rear garden. He was average size but I wasn’t quite sure if it was adult or not. I caught him and weighed him and he was just under 600g. I gave Andrew a quick call and he came around and examined the hedgehog. Unfortunately there were quite a few tics so it was decided that the hedgehog would need to go back to the rescue centre. Here he was weighed – 590g – and is clearly an Autumn Juvenille. TicTok has also got a nasty cough...

Speedy 4 Spot was found asleep on Saturday in one of the feeding stations. Monday completely filled it with leaves and sticks. Been sleeping there every night since. He comes out about 8pm and goes back in for a couple of hours after a good feed and out again. Finally settles around 6 am.

Herrieffs Farm Road…hedgehogs

Posted by on Sep 19, 2012 in stories | Comments Off on Herrieffs Farm Road…hedgehogs

We have been watching our visitors for a few years now. We have three CCTV night vision cameras set up to see them coming and going. At the moment we have three feeding stations and one sleeping house. In recent weeks we have marked them with tippex which is harmless. One spot is a large healthy male Two spot sex not sure Three spot sex not sure Four spot (nickname speedy) sex not sure X spot sex not sure. These ones seem to visit every night without fail. Others of course visit but we are usually in bed so unable to mark them. All we can say...

Jones Close Hedgehogs

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 in stories | Comments Off on Jones Close Hedgehogs

I saw the first hedgehog for years in Jones Close last week. It was a small one but scuttled along in the centre of the road at getting on for 11pm. The following evening at around 10.15pm a different – much larger hedgehog raced by. I have been putting out water each night since,  as well as some peanut granules in one dish and hedgehog food mixed with dried mealy worms in another dish. Several nights all has been devoured. I have now purchased a feeding station from this site as I am wanting to feed a wet food to vary the foods on...

Valley Rd hedgehog

I’ve recently been introduced to the world of hedgehogs… I’ve bought a hedgehog house and hedgehog food from Brackley Hogwatch, set it up in my garden and for the last 3 mornings I’ve checked, all the food has been eaten! I’m pretty convinced it’s a hedgehog as I’ve seen them scurrying around in my garden in the past. Next step is to wire up the tiny camera (again, bought through this site) to my laptop and see if I can catch any footage… Watch this space.
