In the 1950s, there were an estimated 30 million Hedgehogs in the UK. Recent estimates suggest there are fewer than a million left. By building a Hedgehog home, you'll provide somewhere safe to shelter, hibernate and raise hoglets. You can make your Hedgehog home at any time of year, but it will most likely be occupied in Autumn when they are looking for a hibernation spot.
Once your Hedgehog home is in place, it might take a little while to become occupied. And remember that you won't see any activity between October and March or April, when they’re hibernating.
