Well I did manage to go on one walk. and spotted some black poo on a green lane which could have been a badgers, but I’m not sure. I have spoken to a neighbour who regularly cycles and walks around the local villages and he hasn’t seen any signs of them, so that’s a relief.
I know what you mean about the fields Snufflewoofs, they have such a large expanse of fields and hedgerows to explore around us that I’m amazed that we have had so many visitors and it explains why our hedgehog houses aren’t being used. There’s also the possibility that someone further down the road has started feeding them mealworms and has enticed them all away.
The lack of hoglets generally is a worry, but I think I may have been right about Brenda. She didn’t show up again last night, but she turned up briefly the previous evening and I’m sure that she was a tad slimmer. She was also very bad tempered, with another poor female bearing the brunt of her anger as she tried unsuccessfully to defend a food bowl! I even checked back through previous footage just to confirm that she was actually female, as given the opportunity she knocks the large males around too!
It’s so frustrating about the trap Nic, maybe the Daily Mail could run a feature on it to make amends for their recent ‘cock up’!
