Hi Phil1

I had a look at your videos. It is difficult to tell what is going on in the ‘contraction’ one. I wasn’t completely sure which way the hog was facing, but if it was her rear end facing us, you could imagine that she might be giving birth. Not having ever seen it before I couldn’t really say one way or the other. If she was giving birth it seems a bit odd that she would leave so soon after, but I believe there is a high mortality rate amongst tiny babies.

Glad to hear you are getting a trail cam. Hopefully that will throw more light on things.
