Hi, Nic, Heidi looks like she was born this year. She looks exactly like Pippa, but slightly smaller. Heidi is now missing every other night at the feeding station. I have been worried, but she may have been supplementing her diet and actually eating good natural food and just topping up with the food I’ve put out. I’ve just tried to change my profile pic, but can’t see to do it. I will try putting them on the gallery. Pippa was the tiny hog I saw very early this year. Hubby just shouted, ones gone in feeding station now, 5-15pm! Very early tonight. I saw Pippa crunching the ends off the Hawthorn branches with flowers on and eating them! I didn’t think they ate them. The Hawthorn leaves have fallen and built up a bit of cover on the outside of the hog box. There are Beech leaves and laurel leaves I think they use. Like Hedgie Love I’ve put some hey a time or two in the tunnel and although it’s stayed there a few days, it’s been taken into the box. Regarding the buddleia, it was something about not helping native butterflies and “weeding” your neighbours garden! Well, sorry again neighbours, I’ve got three, purple, pink and white as well as the old lilac tree, which seem to get a lot of insects visiting it. Best wishes.
