I stayed up all night and he didn’t show up !

I need to rethink this as it’s not working.
Looking over the images on the camera from when he last visited, his right front leg which is caught in the netting is now twice the size it was so he’s definitely suffered an injury to his leg. My daughter rightly pointed out that if he starts to get really unwell he’s more likely to show up in the day, but we obviously don’t want him getting to that stage.

At present I’ve got two boxes that are regularly used for naps , two hogs usually appear from them in the evening and have a feed from the feeding box before heading off for a wander . If I try and turn the feeding box into another nap box , he might stay overnight in it and then be awake in the evening so I can catch him. I will leave food and water out in the open too, so the regular visitors stay around . Other than that I’m all out of ideas .
