Hi Ruth

Hopefully your hog will return, they travel a long way foraging so may not visit the same garden every night. As long as you’re providing food & water you’re doing your bit for when he does turn up.

I’d love to know where my hog spent winter as it wasn’t in my nestbox, seems to be moving in this week as he’s been coming out of it at dusk & taking extra hay in to make it warmer. Guessing somewhere he has an alternative home where he spent winter & is now getting ready for Spring by feeding again & checking out the hotel facilities in my garden!
