Can't believe how quickly the weeks are going and there is definitely that winter chill in the air now. Although there are still a few weeks before our little spikey friends even think about hybernating me & Dad set about making their habitat a lot more secluded and wildlife friendly.
Just added one of my older pics of one of the hoggies as it is getting harder to see them now. Now that the area is more concealed i am trying not to interfere as i really want them to hybernate there for the winter. The good news is that for the first time both of the cabins are being used!!!. The day after we had rearranged the area i checked and felt spikes in both cabins. I can pretty much tell too as there is loads of straw around the entrances and you can see where they have burrowed each morning to get back inside. The nights are drawing in and we have had loads of rain so it is very rare these days to get a glimpse of them. I know they are visiting though by the tell tale signs with their food.
I promise to keep you up to date but do not think there will be a great deal of action over the next few weeks.
Just a picture of a little fledgling in rescued a few weeks ago from my Dad's cat Sammy. I looked after him over night and syringe fed/water and the next morning i took him to the vets as they contact the Wildlife Centre so they can care for him and release him when he is old enough. I am so happy as many of them die from shock but he survived the night. Don't think i hardly slept that night!!!.
Thankyou for visiting. Promise to be back soon.
