Try not to worry too much, alanfrew. Just keep providing them with food and water and they will look after the rest themselves. It is worrying when they disappear, but there isn’t really anything we can do except hope that they turn up again in the Spring. You’ll probably find that some, at least, of the hoglets will disperse a bit, so don’t be surprised if they don’t all hang around as they get older. I have usually found that the males tend to gradually visit less and less often and the females are more likely to hang around.
