I have experienced similar behaviour in my garden over the last 3 weeks…. In particular 2 females who invariably clash if they are in the same vicinity, which meant they were on ‘edge’ and only feeding for a few moments rather than the 10-15 minute feeds they would have if undisturbed. I created a second feed station 5 metres away last week and the fighting has ceased..
…. so based on that, (I’m new to hog-watching), I would say reducing conflict by offering another feed area can’t do any harm?
