Hi Nic

How fantastic to see the hoglet’s nesting efforts so well! I hope it’s OK in there too, at least you’ll be on hand to see if it comes out in the winter if things go awry in any way but suppose it’s been in their genes for such a long time you have to hope they’ll get it right when they make their hibernation nest.

Frank’s doorbell went off earlier when he was asleep on the settee, turned out to be a black & white cat who we’ve seen on camera going into Frank’s house & trying to get at the hog food when it was underneath to stop cats getting it. Never seen it in the day, must be a night traveller. Nothing to eat out there now so probably looking for mice.

Sending good vibes to Digger & the hoglet to spend a safe & cosy winter & then reappear to give you more joy next year & for many to come.

A few shrubs have flowered again since I cut them back a bit for winter to stop them being damaged by rain or snow weighing them down, any bees & butterflies remaining will enjoy them a little longer.
