Hi Nina, Penny,

As Penny says, not all the hogs visit every night. But I think some of them are very good at avoiding being caught on camera. I often find that hogs I have seen in real time have not appeared on the camera, sometimes even when they have been there for quite a while.

The boss hog here did turn up last night, but I hadn’t seen him for a couple of days. Interestingly he let someone else eat from the next door bowl! In the end they both ran off at the same time in different directions. Very civilized!

I saw one of the cats here the other night. He walked right past the bowls of food. There had been a mouse there just before, so perhaps he was after that. I did find him on the camera the next morning down the path washing his face, as if he had just eaten something – maybe an ex-mouse?

Have just realised you can now see the previous messages, not only the last one. That is good – I often used to want to check a previous message in the middle of my reply.

Looking forward to the girls coming back – hopefully not too long now. Hope they have all survived ok. I find that the girls are more regular visitors than the boys, so I have got to know them better.
