Nest material

This video by Robert Brittle, filmed last year, shows a hedgehog collecting nesting material. We will be seeing a lot of this starting next month as hogs build nests in preparation for having their hoglets.

The Hedgehog who has decided to build a nest under a lavender bush in his back garden, is seen on 4 trips collecting nest materials from around the garden.
