Hi Nic,
The first one of the season arrived last night – temperature minus3°! He knew how to negotiate the feeding station and we think we recognise him as a late youngster that we had to feed up to get him to a good weight. We had hoped he would settle in one of our nest boxes so that we could keep an eye on him, but a bigger hog moved into the box that he had started to take nesting material into so he moved on. We worried about him being so young and we’re delighted he made it through the winter. He visited twice, not eating much on either occasion, but he will find his favourite food out tonight!
