Hi Nic

I replied to your post, then had to edit it, did the captcha thing which was accepted ok & the whole thing disappeared, so will try again.

On 27 October our smaller hog who was a regular all summer visited & after eating a decent meal hasn’t returned, the larger hog who was using Frankie’s kennel disappeared a few days before that & now we only have long tailed field mice appearing on camera.

Nala Frankie’s lovely friend has died from poison of some sort, probably antifreeze. She was such a comfort to me after his death, a beautiful cat & a real character, such a horrible way to die & she was only a few years old. Frightening to think there are poisons of any sort around for animals to innocently come across.

Is Siili still visiting or has she curled up somewhere for the winter?

Thank you for the help re the big black birds in my garden, they must be crows. So funny to watch, they obviously have no idea how huge they are next to the usual garden birds & bumble their way along the fence to try & balance on things far too small for them! The jackdaws stay away from them but the other birds don’t seem bothered.

I cut back my escallonia a few weeks ago as it had gone bonkers & it’s got new flowers on, nice bit of food for any late bees. There are still some around & wasps too.

I’m going to make a new & better feeder as the one I made isn’t the best really though it’s cat proof & the hogs seemed happy enough. Waterproofing it is a problem as you have to be careful it’s animal friendly obviously. Haven’t waterproofed the current one & it’s a bit like my shed, leaky in places.

Thoroughly enjoyed alanfrew’s videos on the forum of his many hogs, how lovely. Hope they stay safe & whoever was blobbing stops asap.
