Clever old Sven! That is very funny. Perhaps he will come back after moulting with a smart new set of spines.
Well it seems the boys are back in town. Typical hogs – as soon as you say there aren’t many boys about, they turn up! I sometimes wonder whether they go walkabout at this time of the year, because I have been seeing some ‘strangers’. One that I caught a brief glimpse of last night, looks suspiciously like one that I did a sketch of in the Spring but haven’t seen since. He has quite unusual markings for round here.
One of the cams caught a ferocious looking fight down the garden – nowhere near the feeding area – so don’t think it was anything to do with food. Still catching bats on the cam, but, as yet, no hogs and bats on the same video. By the way, the cam is sort of sideways on to the buddleia, so you can’t actually see much of it, if you still want to try for bats. There is a clear area of lawn in front of it where they can swoop around. Good luck with the bat box.
