As far as I can see the two young Hedgehogs visit every night and really enjoy their food. In fact they eat as though they hadn't eaten for a fortnight. This clip was taken with the Hitachi DVD camcorder set to night vision so movement will be a bit blurred.
In the same food dish there are also seeds for the early morning birds. The first to arrive at the moment is a Magpie closely followed by a group of Rooks all trying to fill their throat pouches as fast as they can. At this time when they are probably feeding their young their usual sociable nature becomes a bit strained. It was a pity there is no microphone with that camera so you will have to imagine the squawking and cawing going on.
I was pleased to see that there is a Hedgehog once again sleeping in the Hedgehog House, the first time for three days. I had a look to see at what time the hog entered the box and found this - The Hedgehog arrived for a late night snack and at the same time a Magpie arrived for its early morning feed. A minute or so later the hog made its bed in the house.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you. You never know what is going to happen next.
By the way. I have just heard my first Cuckoo, not just of this Spring but the first I have heard in a few years.
