How lovely!! I have loads of videos – have only been hog-watching since the beginning of May! but I am now trying to be a bit more selective about the ones I keep! I have a few ‘rolling and biffing” sequences and loads of them running straight across the viewfinder! Others are of them drinking – I have a large glazed plant pot saucer which they like to paddle in at the same time as drinking – sadly the last one gets quite a lot of grit! My camera is set up about 4ft away from the feeding station which is still a bit too close as much of the action takes place at the edge – apart from squeezing into the feeding station and/or drinking – but I don’t have any alternative location to put either the camera or the food without making the food a permanent garden ‘feature’ and I am sure the hogs are happier to have it all quite secluded. My cat did take some interest but we often get visits from a neighbours cat who just sniffs and then walks away – once she cant reach the food she looses interest!
