Hi Willpar and Annie

I think if I put my cam that close the lights would be too bright and everything would just come out white. I sometimes think the hogs must know when the cameras are on ‘sleep mode’ and move around then, just to keep us guessing! That must have been annoying dropping the cam, Willpar – even the cheaper ones aren’t really cheap.

The snow here was really only a sprinkling and is well gone now.

Hoglet seems to be exploring more now. My new ‘gate’ cam has seen her disappearing under the gate a few times. She can’t be going far as she isn’t gone long. Except when she leaves for the morning.

I think I should stop calling hoglet ‘she’ as I am beginning to suspect that she might in fact be a he. I was never sure, I just wanted him/her to be female, especially being, probably, Digger’s hoglet. I’m still not absolutely certain but now hoglet is growing I sometimes think I can see, on video, a slight ‘blob’ underneath. I haven’t seen anything when he/she is scratching but he/she is quite clever at having a good scratch without rolling over too much. Time will tell, I hope.

I tried out the tinned cat food last night and none of it was touched. I will try some more tonight, but maybe it’s just as well they were tiny tins. The kitten biscuits are still going down well, but hoglet has also been seen foraging a bit down the garden.
