Miniature number two’s still litter the garden, so I know that the hoglets are out there somewhere, but still no sightings. TT really has got them well trained. For the past couple of weeks she has been entering the garden by a different route, usually around 9pm. I have set two cameras up most nights to try and capture her on film whilst it’s still light, but they have only captured her twice. On at least two occasions I have watched her with my own eyes glance at the camera from a distance and then take a different route across the garden to avoid it! On another occasion, I was waiting for her to arrive and take her usual route to the dish of food at the top of the garden; after about half an hour I gave up and walked into the kitchen only to find that she had already been and gone, leaving a half empty dish on the doorstep! On checking the video footage the following morning, she was captured at the usual time walking towards where I was on look out, but I had seen nothing. So, either this is more evidence of the well documented cloaking device, or I ‘should have gone to specsavers’!

At the moment, all of the patients at our local rescue are being named after Harry Potter characters, so the little one found out during the day on a neighbour’s garden has been called Nagini. Just too much of a coincidence don’t you think, maybe the carers know more about their hidden talents than they’re letting on…

I could hear a hedgehog chomping away in the feeding station the other evening, so I waited with the camera to capture it leaving. Yet again it was TT, but instead of doing a runner, she just sat and stared at me without moving for a good five minutes…not quite sure what was going on there, maybe hypnotism is another of her hidden talents!

The new feeding station mark 3 is still cat proof and even the ‘cat from hell’ hasn’t managed to break in. It was built in an afternoon with a length of 9” x 1” and 7” x 1” timber and a piece of marine ply at a cost of just over £20.00.
