Hello, trailcam in my feeder last night had 66 short clips with multiple visits. Close inspection suggests there are recurrent visits by 3 different ones throughout the night (1 with a tick near its right eye, 1 with no tick and 1 with a small nick in its ear). That would account for the amount of food they have been going through the last few nights. At first I thought only one hog but now…

Last year I used a home made feeding station which needed a lot of adaptation to keep out the various local cats. So last month I bought a purpose-built one which was advertised as being cat-proof. The trailcam inside proved this not to be the case as two of the local moggies were squeezing in (must be very bendy). A piece of paving slab at each entrance seems to have done the trick so far – fingers crossed.
I have two hog houses (igloo style) but don’t know if they are inhabited. I also have a garden shed which has very good access underneath at one end. Whenever I saw hogs arriving in the past, they’d come in from the back lane behind the houses.
