Thanks Nic and Marchel for the info and observations. I don’t think all of the houses were in use over winter- just four or five were used for hibernation- but it seems to have gotten popular with visiting hogs that often stay over. I suppose their natural food sources may still be a bit scarce. Hopefully they will spread out a bit more once the food stocks pick up and mating season begins. Interesting to hear some people are already seeing mating behaviour, I didn’t realise it started quite so early.
