I’m new here and very excited and passionate about my new little guests. I think I have two big ones and a smaller one but it’s hard to tell – they don’t look dissimilar – let’s face it. I have a trail camera and the first thing I do every morning is race out in my nightie, grab the camera and take it back to bed with a cup of tea and see what antics have occurred overnight.
I have made 3 hog feeding stations out of clear plastic boxes from IKEA. They are like Goldilocks – they go in and out of the boxes to see what dish of food they prefer. I have been giving them mealworms but I will slowly phase them out now.
My problem is that no matter what I try, the cat from next door manages to contort himself into all shapes to get through baffles into my boxes. So I’ve ditched the wet cat food now which is a shame. The hogs just weren’t getting a look in.
I’m delighted to be part of this community. I live in Bishops Waltham which is a semi rural village between Winchester and Southampton.
