When I went out into the wind and rain last night to check if the feeding dishes needed replenishing as usual (around 10:00pm) none of the food had been touched (unusual) and the straw indicators showed that on two of the houses no one had yet emerged, on the third someone had gone in.

Come the morning and one of the guests had ventured forth and half the plate of food had gone, the other nearby house showed no signs of anyone having gone in or out, whereas the third house’s straw had been re-triggered.

All the food in the second station had been eaten.

So, only around half the food normally consumed overall, and less signs left of comings and goings, mostly in the small hours I guess.

A very distinct chill in the cold North wind down in Kent this morning, but temps are expected to climb again during the week.
