Hi Nic,

Panda huh – I’m guessing WWF? Anyway thanks for the tips and one day who knows!

Yes I felt the same way retorspectively about the big fella when the little guy turned up (as I first thought the big fella would dish out a biffing to the little guy but it turned out to be the other way round). The little guy isn’t so little now and it still dishing out biffings to the big fella when they meet but both continue to visit my feeding stations.

I was a bit worried about the little guy the other night as he came for his early evening feed then went off as normal but I didn’t see him again that night which was unusual as he always comes back for seconds a couple of hours later. The following night I didn’t see him early evening either. The big fella turned up ok, and must of thought his Christmases had come at once as he had first pick of the food.

I was trying to remain positive and just after 10pm the little guy put in an appearance so happy days. He is now back to his normal routine (probably to the regret of the big fella – I wish they could rejig their timings to avoid each other but they keep coming within 10/15 minutes of each other). Hopefully he found a female to woo hence the non appearance. I still haven’t seen any females only the 3 males but I know they come out of hibernation later than the males but hopefully thet are out and about by now.
