Hi Hognut.
Sorry to hear the hogs have stopped visiting there. It isn’t necessarily common, but it does happen. There could be many reasons for this. For instance someone else is feeding them, their route has been blocked, etc. as well as the more worrying reasons. Now we are in the run up to hibernation, it may be that they won’t be back for this year (although there are often hoglets around quite late in the year) but it is possible they will return next year. It is always a mixture of joy and worry having wild animals visiting. They do their own thing and we have no control over them – which is as it should be. But it makes it difficult for us, if we get attached to them, even if it is from a respectful distance. Keep keeping an eye out, though, because if there are any hogs or hoglets still around they will be needing food to put on weight for hibernation.
