Hi Annie

Great to hear from you. I was only thinking today we hadn’t heard from you for a while! Hope you’ve been keeping well.

No more sightings of the grass-snake – I guess once the frogs had all gone/moved out it wasn’t worth it hanging around.

I know what you mean about the food. It’s nice to think if they’ve made the effort to visit that they actually find some left. But quite tricky getting it just right.

My problem now is that one of my feed boxes is out of action – for feeding, at least – having been taken over for a nest. It’s a male hog, so I’m assuming he’s planning on hibernating in there. He has been building it the last few nights. I keep cutting long grasses for him, which he has been taking in. Great streamers leading into the doorway!

I’ve ended up a couple of times with hogs on top of my perspex which looks quite funny. Unfortunately the video usually runs out before they get off, so not sure quite what the technique is – although it’s only a 3 litre flowerpot high.

It’s good to hear you have had hoglets visiting. I’ve seen a few, but they haven’t become regular visitors, so far.

Lucky Kevin the squirrel having his own custom made feeder! The racing pigeon sounds fun – can just imagine the others looking down on him in horror at his behaviour!
