Having had two weeks when hardly any food was taken and very few images on the camera, they are now back to eating me out of house and home and with frequent visits, starting at anytime after 7pm, right through to the following morning when I let the cat out!! The visitors all seem to be juveniles and of good weight – although I haven’t tried to weigh them but they seem a good size and very active.

I also tried the “straw indicator” method and my house has been visited every night – whether there is a sleeping hog inside is another question but it is stuffed full of bedding!
