Finally, after three or four years residence in my garden, a hog has moved into one of my hog houses. During this recent hot weather feeding has sometimes been erratic, with some food left in the bowl but the water bowl, which doubles as a bird bath in the daytime, has been well used.

My cat drew my attention to the resident this morning; and lo, there in the front chamber was a large, sleeping hog. The rear chamber is packed with leaves and I did not examine this too closely for fear of disturbing anything which may be there. Time alone will tell whether this is a formal occupation or a temporary sleeping arrangement, though I am hoping that having discovered the delights of this accommodation, it takes up more permanent residence. It is ideally situated in a well sheltered quiet site free of direct sunlight. It does not, however, have a sea view!
