Wildlife photographer, Keith Elcombe reported a lovely surprise one day on a recent visit down to the bottom of his garden.
Whilst restocking the mealworm feed he often leaves in his hedgehog house, he found not only was the house occupied by the usual adult hogs…
…but much to his delight he found that his house was home to new baby hoglets too! Tucking into a mealworm dish nonetheless.
Take a look at Keith’s Tweet:
Thank you. I am sooo happy! We have two and they’ve made their home in the hedgehog house. I restock food regularly. 😁
