Hi Paddy

Glad you are getting some sleep and that the badgers haven’t been so much in evidence. I agree the latrine in your garden sounded worrying. Let’s hope they don’t find another way in.

The trouble with this time of year regarding the hogs is that they are beginning to drift away to hibernation now, although I suspect some of the females may still be on hoglet duties and there are sometimes a few hoglets around a bit later. I haven’t seen any of the ‘regular’ mature males here for a while now. So it may have been, even without the badgers, that you didn’t see hogs.

Hopefully, if you are able to keep the badgers out of the garden there will be some hogs back next year. Although, I fear that badgers may become more common in urban areas.
