Thanks Nic. Good point about the hogs in care, they don’t have a choice!

Spring and Autumn makes sense, to avoid breeding and hibernation. No spare houses I’m afraid, just the 2 I made hurriedly last year to cater for a couple of the Autumn juveniles we had. I think it was on Wildlife Online I read studies have shown that hogs naturally move fairly regularly and because of the numbers visiting there must be plenty of places nearby to nest.

I noticed one hog with a tick last week, so perhaps now is a good time for a Spring clean. A job for the weekend I think.
