Hi Mayhew family

Really good news that your camera has been so successful. Good thing you made that hog hole! You might get even more hogs visiting next year. We are on the run down to hibernation now so maybe not so many around as usual.

Yes, good advice from William C relating to not disturbing nest boxes. The only exception is when absolutely certain that no-one is resident in the Spring and Autumn, when they might need a clean out to help keep down parasites.

Feed boxes are slightly different, of course, when they obviously need to be opened to change the food, etc. But, in general the hogs are less likely to sleep in a feed box, if there is no bedding left in there. It happens very occasionally, usually with males, who maybe stayed out too late!

Hope you get lots more good clips from the camera.
