Glad to hear your den is being used! It sounds quite normal behaviour to me. We like to think the hogs live in our gardens, but in fact they need several gardens to survive and it sounds as if the hog there is just going on his/her nightly rambles. You are just lucky that it is coming back to your garden to sleep. I am fairly sure that none of the hogs who visit my garden are actually residing here, other than occasional short stays, but many of them still visit regularly. Some even seem to have their own ‘clocks’!
It is quite possible that the hog will move on after a while. That is normal behaviour as well, probably to help avoid collecting too many parasites in their sleeping place. But it doesn’t mean it will stop visiting your garden and it also doesn’t mean another one might not move in.
It is obviously a vote of approval anyway!
