Nicholson Hedgehogs

We have had the trail cam out to capture the Nicholson hedgehogs, but for a couple of days did not capture anything.

Having looked at the camera I think that it was due to the heatwave we had over the last few days as the camera registered temperatures (inside the camera) of 53 °C!

I suspect this high temperature level may have interfered with its ability to detect movement.  Since the temperature has dropped we have some footage :-).

Paul, I am wondering if this is why my two hedgehogs were so distressed I had to let them go early. Would seem a reasonable assumption.

Yes possibly, but they are obviously happy enough because at least one of them has come home :-).
Maybe we should set the camera up to monitor them coming and going?
