Hi Annie

Good to hear you still have some hog activity there. Hopefully they’ll have a head start on the upcoming season.

The hogs here seem to have decided to hibernate despite the funny weather. No sign of any hogs for about 3 weeks. I’m still putting food out, but there is a corvid party every morning eating the food on the grass!

Froggy still seems to be around, but no frog spawn in the pond again – but I suppose it’s still possible. Unfortunately I also saw a ratty last night, briefly, but not eating the food. Also a cat which maybe why ratty only made a fleeting visit!

Yes, it could still get really cold. I usually see the first boy here about the beginning of March, but that could change. I hope they are ok. I saw a rat going in there briefly – a while back, but hopefully it was met with a load of spines as it seemed to come straight out again.

Garden bird watch wasn’t too bad, here, this year. Surprisingly a greenfinch turned up, but I haven’t seen it again since. Otherwise just the usual suspects, although the numbers of each species seemed lower.
