Hi Annie

I hope you are well after your visit to Weston-super-mare. The snow was a bit of a problem – I cleared a path up the garden for hoglet (he hasn’t quite changed name yet!) one night, but by the next morning it was a foot deep again. Cleared it again the next night, but of course the poor chap had to get through whatever else was in between here and where his day nest is. I didn’t see him for 2 nights, but then he was back again, looking very wary and ate quite a lot of food the first couple of nights back. The snow has gone now, and thank goodness he is back to his normal self again. He seems to be spending less time here and doing more foraging, which is good really – the foraging bit. He still seems to be eating about the same amount but in fewer ‘sittings’.

I did wonder whether I had another hog back as well, but think it may just have been hoglet. The cameras were sometimes a bit misty. It shouldn’t be long now before some more of the males reappear. Hope you get lots of hogs there this year.
