Update from the carers- all of the hoglets are still with us and doing well, one has done brilliantly and grown to 800g so they want to give him back to me tomorrow to release. I’ve not seen any hogs for weeks and the food isn’t being eaten, so I think the resident hogs are already hibernating. I have vacant hog boxes so hopefully the returning hog will choose to stay overwinter. I have nesting materials but will he be able to build a suitable nest before the cold snap predicted next week?
