At the bottom of our garden there is an area that is under trees that I just plant a few bulbs in and leave mostly to do its own thing, I also have several tree branches and half a hollow trunk thats been lying there for ages , today OH and I noticed that something has sealed up one end of the hollow with leaves and bits and pieces of soil/debris and the other end it had half pulled in leaves and small branches from the conifers , this bit of trunk is about a foot long . So what could be using it as a home?
Later today I noticed that one of the branches had been moved and I could clearly see a round hole about the size of a tin can where the branch had been moved. The thing is we have a family of 3 cats that use our garden as a safe place to hang out away from the neighbouring dogs and they don't seem the least bit interested in this trunk which I'm sure they would be if it were mice or heaven forbid a rat.
I live in the very outskirts of London with lots of fields etc closeby , so I'm guessing maybe a small hedgehog maybe that isn't hibernating because of the mild weather... any other ideas? now OH wants to lash out on a wildlife camera to find out exactly whats going on..
