Hi Annie and Wildlifehaven . It has been very dry here too and like you Wildlifehaven the water butts are very low. I think we need at least a day’s rain to fill them up again. The birds will keep bathing in the water bowls and emptying them of water, so they keep needing filling as well. You would think the dry weather would attract the hogs back to our gardens for food and drink, but like you say, it has been quite cold some nights.
I’m pleased to say there have been hogs back here at a reasonable hour again tonight, after two very quiet nights. Dear old Digger – the oldest of the girls was only 15 minutes late! I went out to get the bowls in just now and could hear some courtship going on in the depths of the flowerbed.
I remember before I joined Hedgehog Street, reading about all the hogs everyone had back and none had returned here, but they did eventually and I hope some hogs visit both of you again soon. With all that food waiting for them, they’d be silly not to!
