Small hog on Tuesday night

Tuesday night was a busy night for hedgehogs in the garden, with several showing up between 8:30PM and 5:00AM or thereabouts. On hog in particular struck me as being rather small. Too big to be a juvenile at this time in the year, I would have thought, but smaller than I would have expected to have survived the previous harsh winter. Unless possibly it lost a lot of weight during that time.

  1. We had several quite small ones - around 600g - in our garden at the beginning of this month. Two of them were the Autumn Juveniles we looked after and released last November, so that is the sort of size an Autumn Juvenile would be now.
