Hello Totoro
My resident hog is usually out at about 9pm at the moment so still light. This seems to happen as the nights get shorter and foraging time is reduced. I wouldn’t be too worried as long as it’s purposeful but would keep a check on it. I think they are also sometimes out a bit more in the daylight if they have hoglets and are nesting. Good luck!
