Hedgehog Homes

We have had some new homes built for some special residents of Green Park... hedgehogs!

Dotted around the estate, these homes will provide sanctuary to the solitary animals. Hedgehogs use two nests throughout the year, one for hibernating in from October - April and a second Summer home.

Keep a look out for the homes, but we kindly ask you do not disturb the habitat.

A few facts about hedgehogs...

  • They can live to an average age of five years
  • They are solitary by nature
  • The Hoglets (Young) leave the nest at 6-8 weeks old
  • They eat beatles, earth worms, slugs, snails and other insects
  • The mother will return to the same nest year on year to raise her young
