I have seen a decrease in the number of hedgehogs visiting to feed in my garden over the last 2 nights. I wonder whether the badger visit is anything to do with it?
This harassment went on for over 1.5 hours. He eventually gave up.
Shrepreth requested pictures of drinking hedghogs. This is the first of 11 feeding/drinking sessions last night, which is usual in my garden.

Pleased to report I have a hedghog coming to the feeding box again.
