That video is absolutely hilarious!
There has been a fair bit of bad behaviour here too. The first night one of the returners was here, he hurtled into poor hoglet, who had been walking down the path, not even considering there might actually be other hogs in ‘his’ terrain. Hoglet didn’t realise he was supposed to roll up, either, and resisted for quite a while. Hoglet is actually quite big now – I really must give him a proper name!
Then the other night one of the hogs was unceremoniously ejected from one of the hog houses, complete with a layer of leaves.
The only unfortunate thing is that it is going to be difficult encouraging them to turn up earlier because hoglet has got used to having his food available all night. He has got used to kitten biscuits, which rats aren’t so keen on, I don’t think, but the other hogs prefer hog food. It will probably work itself out when the weather gets a bit warmer and there is more wild food around.
I was worried about the boys, too. They were much later returning than last year. Now just have the wait for a few weeks until the females return too – I hope. I was worried about some of them as they disappeared a bit too early for hibernation, but maybe it was just because any hoglets they had, had ‘left home’ already.
