Feeding Station.

15th September 2017
This is our latest hedgehog house/feeding station, we are using it as a feeding station in our garden with the added brick tunnel to make sure no unwanted visitors get the food. The roof lifts off so it's easy to get the food in and to clean so can be left in a permanent postion in a corner of your garden, preferably near a boundary.
It is better to use dried food as the smell is not as strong so is less likely to attract cats. Also remember to leave out fresh water this is very important for all wildlife.

You can also make one.
Take an under bed storage box and cut out a small hole in one of the edges about the size of a cd, cover with duct tape any of the edges that are rough.
Place a brick inside the box and put the food on the other side this helps the hogs feel safe and stops cats being able to twist round to get to the food or other animals getting their paws inside to drag the food out .
Hedgehogs like meaty cat or dog wet food but we tend to use dried food, small cat biscuit or you can buy wild hedgehog food a few sunflower hearts and a sprinkling of meal worm (but not too many).
Replace the lid and put a heavy brick on top to stop larger animals knocking it over to get the food out.
And once again fresh water.
