Don’t worry daffydill, I think we probably all worry about the hogs and it isn’t always completely clear what is the best thing to do – especially with regard to late youngsters. But, yes, it can be light later here, too, if it’s a nice sunny day.

I have been having to leave kitten biscuits outside as the hoglets here at the moment don’t seem to like boxes and have a preference for eating on the grass. I’ve tried to coax them into the food box, but they never get past just inside the entrance. Luckily they don’t seem to mind if the kitten biscuits get a bit soggy when it rains. The consolation is that the camera gets a good view and the birds seem to eat any leftovers.

Good luck with the hogs there.
