Hi Gr8mums

I wouldn’t be too worried by what you describe either. It is more if they are right in the open and particularly if they look as if they are sunbathing or have any flies around them that would be worrying.

They can move surprisingly quickly when they feel like it and actually have much longer leg than at first appears! You are so lucky having the little ones to watch. I have just caught a glimpse of hoglets a couple of times on video, but so far they haven’t hung around.

It’s always a bit sad then they all disappear for hibernation, but all we can do is wait and hope that, at least some of them, will be back the next year and then the fun begins all over again!
