Hi Annie

I am still seeing the hoglet on the cam every night. Not sure whether it is still using the nest, although the night before last it was seen on the cam going in. But, no more nesting activities. It’s amazing the hoglets just know how to make a nest so elaborately. The hoglet is beginning to look more like Digger and last night I had to look really hard at one of the cam clips to be sure it wasn’t her back again – it was in the shadows at the side of the frame.

For years, not a single cat has shown any interest in the hog food, and then suddenly this annoying one appears and keeps getting there before the hoglet is out to eat. I have now taken to spreading the food more thinly and putting some of the long grasses loosely over the top (to, hopefully, deter the cat). Last night I didn’t see it eating – so fingers crossed. The hoglet doesn’t seem to mind the grass.
