Hi Annie

Dear old Digger! She is such a character. I am so glad she is back this year. She must be quite an old hog now, hence the wisdom of keeping the boys in their place! I was looking at last year’s notes and the girl who crosses the road didn’t seem to feature until late May. But then became a regular visitor. She can’t have been hibernating that late, I wouldn’t have thought, so she must have been staying closer to home – until she had put on condition again(?). I hope she will do the same this year and turn up and surprise me one night

We had a bit of rain, but not as much as you, it sounds. Still, any is better than none. They are funny when they shake themselves so hard. I have seen them actually roll right over – and when they have been scratching too!

I don’t have the same hogs visiting every night here. There are usually a core of ‘regulars’ – mostly the girls – but the others come and go a bit.

I always think the looking for poo thing is funny too – Chris Packham would be proud of us all!
