Hi zippy

I have to say that when I hear about disappearing hogs these days the first thing that comes into my mind is the ghastly A24 trap, which you may have heard about. BUT, it is very quiet here at the moment as well. Often at this time of year the females are busy with hoglets and that means that there is less to attract the males. The males have a bigger range and if you happen to be on the edge of it, they may just be spending more time in other parts of it. Hopefully, if hoglets are the cause, some will soon be big enough to be out and about and with a bit of luck might visit you.
