Hi paulwj

Yes, that’s quite normal, especially if it’s damp. It isn’t those really big slugs that they eat, it’s normally the much smaller ones. The good news is that it’s the smaller ones who apparently do most of the damage to plants. Having said that, slugs don’t form a huge part of their diet. Probably what they eat most is beetles. That’s why if you find poo of a hog who has been eating a natural diet, you will see shiny black bits from beetle wings.
