Hi everyone, exactly the same thing has happened to me! I’ve had hogs every night since April, two of whom were nesting in my hedgehog houses but over the last three weeks all of them have gone. It’s always a worry but the same thing happened in September last year and they came back this year. The trouble is you just don’t know. There is the odd badger around here and I’d hate to think this was the issue. My problem is that I currently have two foster hogs in a hutch until they get to release weight and I just don’t know now whether to release them here or not. They’ve got a few weeks yet before they will be able to be released so I’ll keep the camera on at night and see if any of the other hogs reappears before making a decision.
