RSPB – ‪#‎homesfornature‬ weekend challenge – build a Hedgehog home #beasts

So last weekend’s challenge set by the RSPB Giving Nature a Home campaign – #homesfornature weekend challenge – build a hedgehog home.  We had a busy weekend lined up so I knew that if we could manage this challenge , it would be on a week day.

We needed to build a chamber – what with?  I was really struggling with this until we stumbled upon some loose tree bark on the grass on a day out earlier in the week.  Lightbulb moment – we can recycle that for our chamber for our homes for nature hedgehog home!

We were off!

We have a low-lying shrub at the bottom of the garden with long, low hanging branches – ideal for a hedgehog home.  Monkey carried the bark out for me and I constructed a bark chamber under the shrub – it took a bit of doing to get it all to stay together, but finally it was done.  I pulled the shrub branches over the top and hope that a hedgehog might like to set up home soon.

We do get hedgehogs in the garden so fingers crossed one might move in permanently.

Now, I should also remind everyone that this weekend is the RSPB Big Sleepout, if you like camping out and fancy finding some wildlife in your back garden then join in 🙂

Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
