Hi Annie

So annoying when that happens and it always seems to be that they disappear when you don’t have a copy!

Hogs and poo! What can I say – messy little things!

Pleased to say that in the past few weeks two large frogs have been seen in the pond again. Also came across another large one – the other side of the house in some long grass. It would be so nice to have some tadpoles – ever hopeful!

Your pigeon pal sounds lovely! I’ve got a little robin who seems to appear whenever I’m in the garden. He sits in a nearby bush and sings away – very quietly. I’ve heard blackbirds doing the same before now – almost as if they a practising their harmonies. He’ll land on a post about a foot away, but doesn’t land on me. But it’s lovely when there is one like that.

I have a hog (or two) nesting in one of my food boxes (the one with the smallest end chamber! When there was a perfectly good empty hog box next door!) He scurried around for a few nights taking in lots of material and then a few days later I noticed that another hog also kept going in there (both males). They both kept coming out for a while and I began to wonder whether either of them was going to hibernate, but the one whose nest it was eventually stopped coming out.

I continued to see the other one going in and out until a couple of nights ago. But not certain that he went back into the box the last time, so he could be hibernating elsewhere. I’ll leave the cameras on, so hopefully will see if there are any comings or goings. I hope they both do ok. A bit worried that nest might have been a bit squashed with two of them going in and out!

I’ve seen a few hoglets (separately) at various times this year, but they didn’t come to the food, which is strange. So didn’t become regular visitors, which is a bit sad. But no hogs at all the last couple of days.

I hope all the hogs there have a safe hibernation time too.
