Hi Nic, Simbo and Annker,
Thanks for all the information!
Over the past few nights I’ve just been putting out dry food, which they’ve wolfed down! I have three bowls of water around the garden and we’ve seen them all being drunk from, which is so cute to watch. Unfortunately they haven’t obliged us with a nice view of their abdomens, so we’re still quite clueless as to their sex!
Also, we’ve only ever see one at a time, so unable to observe behaviours in presence of another hog as yet.
The hedgehog house is definitely being used, as we’ve seen hogs eating and drinking then scampering off to the house. Very pleasing to see!
As far as hog poo is concerned we have never had poo inside the feeding stations. They love leave lots of ‘presents’ for us mainly in two areas of the garden, on gravel on the edges in two corners. Interestingly, they manage to poor up walls! Very acrobatic!
Thanks to all for your help. Annker I do hope that you are fully recovered from your tonsillitis.
Take good care everyone, stay safe, and happy hog watching!!!
