Hi Nic, I have no intention of disturbing Pippa at all. I had intended to make an air hole a small amount bigger to get an inspection camera in, in future to check if vermin were using the house. I haven’t done this because it was unclear to me just what was in there. So decided this job would have to wait till after hibernation and they were off on their travels. If its packed with leaves, hey… you wouldn’t be able to see anything anyway. It was purely to see if vermin had taken over the box that I wished to see, as I’ve said, a dead rat was found and I did have a complaining neighbour. Now I’ve seen Pippa go in there, she is welcome to have it and apart from leaving some more hey for her I will be leaving her completely alone at the bottom of the garden, in the hope she will survive this coming winter. Thank you for your support and information, best wishes.
