Our neighbours have more hog activity than us but yesterday I discovered, by the fence under the clematis, a lovely round nest with a hog asleep inside. I set the camera in front of it last night and the hog came out just after midnight and spent an hour uprooting bits of my lawn(!) and taking it inside. The hog looks very overweight to me – generally fat rather than just the tummy as I’d expect if it was a pregnant female. I’ve uploaded a short video of it waddling back to the nest – let me know what you think:

Fat Hog!

When the video stops, the nest is just behind the hog and you can just about make out the entrance hole to the right of her (his) head.
