Hi Annie

Happy new year to you, too.

Yes, I have a Mrs. Blackbird asking for food again, too. Although not every day, as now I’m not regularly feeding the birds I’m not outside so much.

I haven’t seen any hogs for ages. I was seeing the occasional rat before so haven’t been putting food out – they would just eat it and there would be nothing left for the hogs anyway. It’s mostly mice now, on the cameras, or birds during the day. I have been leaving the camera on all day in case any hogs turn up.

Grey squirrels are a tricky one. I always think they are really cute – and amazing to see them on those squirrel tests to see how clever they are. But at the same time it would be nice to see red squirrels around, too. I have heard of ways of controlling the numbers of greys without actually killing them, though. It is a good example of the dangers of introducing foreign species on the pre-existing species. But once they are an established species here ….. ?

I agree re. all the wet weather. I imagine there will be a fair few poor hogs who got caught out by the floods. A bit unfortunate that the cameras don’t seem to work so well at this time of year. Fingers crossed for all the hogs.
