Having only just got really interested in our little visitors activity, I’m constantly on the lookout for them. They are still taking their food but not all of it is being eaten like before so I presume they must be ready for hibernation. I’m a bit concerned this hasn’t happened yet but seeing as it’s 12 degrees this morning I’m not surprised they’re confused.
I actually saw one first thing this morning in the entrance to the Hog House. It went very still and I started panicking. I ran into the house for my phone to call my husband but by the time I’d got back down the garden it had gone back in it’s nest and I could hear it getting nestled in the leaves inside. I am convinced I will end up a nervous wreak!
I will miss them when they do eventually go into hibernation but at least my nerves may get a rest until spring. Mind you, then I’ll be worrying if they’ve all survived the winter!! 😁😁
