In my last post I showed the Hedgehog who had visited the garden and how exciting it was to actually see one for real.
I have continued as usual to put out the dog food for the foxes and of course it's all gone in the morning but unless I sit at the window all evening there's not much chance of me seeing him again.
I was surprised at how fast they can move and I think that after hastily gobbling down some food he is off like a shot, therefore it's difficult to know if he's been back.
I have wrestled with myself over if I should make an effort to put out food especially for him each night as once I start I would feel obliged to keep it up.
But my softy side said yes, put some out.
I had previously put some food right alongside the shed where I hoped the fox couldn't get it and it has disappeared each night, but knowing Mr.Fox he may have shoved his leg along and got to it.
So, to solve the question of whether the Hedgehog has been back I've place an upturned box with a slab on top and some dog food right at the back of the box. I'm hoping that this is fox proof and if the food goes it will indicate that the Hedgehog is still coming.
