Hi Yvonne

Yes, the hogs do sometimes miss a night or even two and then come back. It may have been something to do with Mum trying to distance herself from them. Glad to hear the small ones are all so big and now have their own nests.

Normally hogs can get into most boxes, but sometimes they’re made with smaller entrances. But maybe there was another reason why she couldn’t get in, i.e. it was full of bedding and hoglet. or something similar? It’s sometimes not easy to work out exactly what’s happening on video – which I’m assuming is how you were seeing her? If she can’t get into any of the boxes, hopefully she will make herself a hibernation nest the natural way, if she hasn’t already. It may not be in your garden, but hogs visit many gardens.

Good luck with all of them.
