How To Look After A Hedgehog This Winter

Autumn not only brings cosy jumpers and the promise of a pumpkin spice latte but hedgehog activity spikes.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals so there is a chance you’ll see more in the autumn months.

Hedgehogs have been at serious decline in England over the past few years. They are a protected species and to find out how to help you can go to the British hedgehog preservation society.


Hedgehogs love nesting in log piles. So If you do plan on having a bonfire then make sure you check for any nesting within the wood on the day of lighting the bonfire. You can check when placing Firemizer or using Firebuilder!

Food and Drink

Did you know cat or dog food is a great supplementary food for hedgehogs? The only liquid given to hedgehogs should be water.


They usually hibernate in November to easter but it is dependent on weather. They usually wake up a few times throughout winter and build a new nest.



Always check the area before streaming for hedgehogs and accidents from this are mostly fatal. As well do check for hoglets as there could be a nest nearby.


Using old and decaying wood to create a pile will bring about insects but all a safe place for hedgehogs to nest and hibernate.


Hedgehogs love water if you have a pond allow an easy exit route such as a ramp to climb out or make sure the pond has a gentle slope.


Try not to use toxic chemicals or slug pellets in your garden as this will not only reduce the number of insects available to hedgehogs it might make them ill or kill them.


Hedgehogs that are warm t touch will be sleeping whilst hibernating they will be colder. As in hibernation, they reduce their body temperature to conserve energy.


The biggest threat to these creatures is habitat loss. Land that’s being used for construction and roads once would have been a perfect place for hedgehogs. It is important to make our gardens safe places for these creatures.

Things You Didn’t Know About Autumn

As Starbucks has announced the pumpkin spice latte is back it is the start of autumn! Actually there are two different dates for when it is supposed to begin. Autumn defined by the earth orbit around the sun begins on the equinox which falls on 22nd or 23rd of September. However, the meteorological Autumn always begins on the 1st of September.

  • The harvest moon appears in autumn, it is the full moon that appears closest to the equinox. The light from the moon was essential for farmers to have a good harvest as there wasn’t any electricity.
  • Pumpkin is the most craved flavour during this season
  • Oktoberfest is a beer festival that is held during autumn which originated in Munich, Germany in the early 1800s. This is 14 days long and over 1.3 million gallons of beer are poured for this event.
  • Autumn wasn’t introduced into the English vocabulary until the 18th century. Previously we would use the word fall. Autumn came from the French Automne.


Trees prepare for winter

The shorter days are a sign for the trees to prepare for winter. There isn’t enough light during winter for photosynthesis to occur so as the days shorten through autumn the trees begin to shut down their food production and reduce the amount of chlorophyll in their leaves. Catching leaves during autumn is supposed to bring good luck

The chemical called chlorophyll gives leaves the green pigment. This stops being produced during colder seasons allowing other colours to show through like the red, orange and yellow.some of the chemicals that create the yellows, reds and oranges are found in some foods like carrots and egg yolks.


Carving vegetables and placing candles inside them originated in Ireland but they would use turnips or potatoes. When the Irish arrived in American they discovered pumpkins and a new Halloween ritual was born.
