Hi Nic

Our camera runs on mains & records continuously, set it up on desktop last night so had a 10 hour recording to look at today!

Around 23.00 before going to bed we had the pleasure of watching 2 hogs doing the dance together, she wasn’t having any of it & reversed the whole time but after about an hour they had some face to face moments & she nudged him gently a few times. At the front of his head his spikes were upright & facing forward, quite a sight. He had enough of her rejections eventually & left & she reappeared later for food. In the middle of their dance Frank came home & jumped clean over the pair of them, landed on the roof of the cat house & flew in through the cat flap at 100 mph.

In all on video we spotted at least 3, probably 4 different hogs. Trying to establish markings to be able to sort out who’s who, never expected to see so many. Scratchy wasn’t amongst them so must be quite a few hogs around here.

I expect you’ve had a few more visitors since your last posting as you have so many calling at your restaurant.

Battery powered cameras would be easier to place around the garden, might look into that.

I’ve only spotted mice & cats apart from hogs, always hoping for some interesting newcomer though.
