Just joined the site and forum, our resident ‘hog has been active even with the snow on the ground! She was out this afternoon gobbling up mealworms I’d scattered on the patio for the birds, and probably bits of suet pellets the birds drop under the tree. We have a feeding station, (well two, but the first one isn’t in use, it’s a heavy paving slab on bricks that’s really difficult to keep clean, so I made a new one out of a cheap Wilco’s 14 ltr storage box with a hole cut in one end), and she’d cleaned the plate of kitty kibbles and mealworms which I’d topped up yesterday. She’s been around next door as well, my girlfriend could see her tracks in the snow.
I made a number of sleeping quarters out of upturned old plastic flowerpots, but only one has been used, and she’s around every day, even in the daytime recently; I guess being warmer during the day, and being within an environment she’s familiar with and comfortable in, she’s happy to be out during daylight hours.
