Hi Paul J

It depends what you mean by a family. The males don’t have anything to do with bringing up the hoglets, but it’s possible there could be a Mum and her hoglets, either visiting or moved in. Especially if the first ‘small’ one was a hoglet, there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be another one. Once they become independent they pretty much go their own way but if they have found your garden is a good place to visit they may well continue to do that and then their paths are likely to cross.

Fingers crossed it is hoglet(s). It’s always good to hear about hoglets!
