I was really delighted to see a hedgehog in my garden the other night. I had saucers of water out anyway for birds and insects so it could find a drink, and it spent a while rummaging in the leaf litter under the shrubs.
However, talking to friends locally today, they too have had hedgehogs visiting and are concerned that there isn't enough food around as the slugs and snails are hiding and the worms are deep underground. They are putting out dog food each evening.
Do you have a hedgehog visiting your garden? What are your top tips for helping them without attracting local rats/ cats?
