Hedgehog & Squirrel


Wondering what to feed hedgehogs ?
Check out this handy guide by Vale Wildlife Hospital.
Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre is one of the UK’s largest specialist centres, caring for thousands of hedgehogs every year.
The internet offers plenty of advice on what to feed hedgehogs – but unfortunately, much of it is wrong. In this leaflet, Vale answers your questions about what’s right for the hedgehogs that visit your garden


Hedgehogs will hibernate as soon as the food supply starts to run out and air temperatures drop, typically from October to around March/April.
However, this hibernation period is not just one big snooze for a hedgehog, in fact hedgehogs will wake quite frequently during hibernation which is why it's best to continue to put out a small amount of food for your hogs (if you are visited frequently in the summer months).
