Hi Hogmeister

Hope you are keeping safe and well, too.

Hogs do sometimes make nests in feeding stations, so the hog might have been thinking of doing that, which might explain things. A hog has done that a couple of times here – once on top of a bowl of food. I’m guessing you don’t have any video to show what was happening, but maybe another hog dug the bowl out and moved it outside complete with straw and leaves but then realised there wasn’t any food left (?)

I often find leaves in the bowls, but usually only one or at most two. Not sure how that comes about, never caught anything which solves the mystery on video – those invisibility cloaks again!
