Leaving out food and water for hedgehogs at any time of year can be life saving. However, It’s good to protect the food so that family pets and other animal can’t get at it.
The basic design below has proven very effective in attracting hedgehogs to feed in gardens. You can substitute logs and a wooden roof for the bricks and paving slabs to get the same result.
Remember, please leave water and not milk. Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant. Hedgehogs love wet cat food and dry cat food works just as well and won’t freeze in the winter or go off so quickly in the summer.
You could also buy a large plastic storage box and cut a CD sized hole in it and weigh the lid down with a large stone and put food and water in there.
You may also want to invest in a nest-box.
