Your garden can be more than a place where you go to spend time relaxing in your own personal piece of nature’s bounty. It can be a haven to all manner of wild animals and birds. It can help them to survive our nation’s harsh winters and thrive when the weather grows warmer. That’s why, at Little Peckers we supply a whole lot more than food for your domestic birds. We also supply food for local foxes and badgers, not to mention our nation’s lovable hedgehogs.
Whether you’re keen to feed wild hedgehogs or keep a hedgehog as a pet, it’s essential to realise that these little critters have big appetites! They are naturally omnivorous and their diet in the wild largely consists of insects and invertebrates as well as plants and berries. They require a great deal of protein and fat for energy and to keep them warm in the cold weather, as well as keeping energy from fat in reserve for their long hibernation periods from October-November through March-April.
The importance of feeding our nation’s hedgehogs
Hedgehogs are beloved animals and as well as being cute as a button, they’re also a big part of our national identity. Unfortunately, the British hedgehog is under threat and their numbers are declining as greater property development and deforestation lead to habitat loss and depletion of food sources. We can help to protect these precious creatures by giving them a regular source of good quality nourishment and a safe space in which to enjoy their meals.
