Thank you Nic. We spoke to our direct neighbour yesterday to tell her about the hog, as she also had been feeding them in the autumn. She still thinks there is one hibernating among the roots of the bamboo which forms a hedge between us. I am not totally convinced as I fear it may be the hog that I took to the vet, but we will see…….I did have one in my igloo earlier in the autumn, so there may be one in there hibernating.

I won’t of course be looking or disturbing until it warms up a bit and I know they have gone from the hedgehog boxes. I also have a hog house in the front garden but I put that in quite late, and don’t know if a hog went in there at all. Often the food disappears even now, quite quickly but we have so much squirrel activity, I suspect them with eating it.
