Hi Mr. Lucky

That explains it – the reporting. Anyway it has been ‘unreported’ now so that’s good! You can usually edit by pressing the edit button if you do it fairly soon, but that option does seem to disappear quite quickly. Also I have noticed recently that posts I have edited after posting have disappeared, so I think there may be a glitch – that has been reported.

I haven’t watched the whole video again – bit short of broadband this month – but the huffing will be the female. If you look closely (I often look at them with binoculars to get a really close view) you can usually see that it is in time with her movements. Very often the male, especially, will give up and wander off. I sometimes wonder how they ever manage to get round to having any hoglets, they take so long over this ‘courtship’. But luckily hoglets seem to ‘miraculously’ appear from somewhere.
