Hi everyone, thanks, I’ve recovered from my tonsillitis and we are still here, thanks to a lot of very brave volunteers who have shopped for us. Reading tin tin about the hog poo, I can’t get over this, what is going on? I’ve heard they can and will poo on the lense of a trail cam, (clever little things) but this is ridiculous. Poo, all over the place. I’ve cleaned it all up (or as much as I can) for the sake of my wonderful shoppers and two days later, it’s even worse! It’s on the gravel, everywhere, all over the back path, around and inside the feeding station, all over the side path, on the gravel around the lawn, the paths at the front, the back and front door mats, just everywhere. I’ve never seen this before. I also haven’t noticed the smell of wee, just this poo all over. My security light near feeding station has gone wonky (does anyone have anything good to say about led’s) so not catching what’s happening there. I’m about to put out my trail cam again as my shoppers have brought me some batteries. I had it out a few weeks ago, exactly the way they go coming out of the feeding station. Over 2,000 pics on it, just 1 of a hogs backside. So, need to think where it will go this time!
Just heard on radio that hedgehogs are living it up at the moment, less people, less traffic, probably more babies this year. If this is all what it’s about, I’ll suffer the poo. It just shows what we all mess up in this world. It’s been able to breath. Best wishes to you all. Stay safe and enjoy this breathing space we are giving back to the earth.
