Hi Cattypuss

It’s good to hear that your hog friends are returning. Yes, some hogs, especially hoglets decide not to hibernate and will continue coming for food all winter.

However, seeing a hog out during the day rings alarm bells – especially in the winter when the nights are so long. If it should happen again, it’s best to contact your local carers and take advice. (you can get contact details of your local carers by ringing 01584 890801 – number also below on the left) Hogs, being wild animals, do their best to look ok until they really can’t, so it’s not easy to tell just by looking whether they are ok or not.

Sounds like the hogs there are keeping you entertained with their antics! Good luck with them all and happy hog watching.
