Hi Woodpecker,

So sorry to hear that your hogs have gone missing, ours too are in rapid decline since a dead badger was spotted at the side of the road on the way into the village around three weeks ago. This is the first badger I have ever seen near to the village in over 23 years! For the last week the food has barely been touched, they normally get through four dishes a night! We haven’t had any rain now for over a month, so you would think that they would need water at least. Apparently badgers can eat up to three kilograms of worms in just two ours, but with the ground being so dry at the moment I am worried that they are looking elsewhere for easier pickings! 🙁

Yes, it would be interesting to know if anyone knows of hedgehogs and badgers living together side by side?
