Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings First Hog Sighting of the Year Reply To: First Hog Sighting of the Year


Hi Dottie (19uk),

Glad your hogs have returned this year that is great news.

I hadn’t seen a hog in my garden for years then I had 2 turn up in April 2015 but they disappeared by the end of August, far too early, so I thought thats that and it was fun while it lasted.

Pleased to say they returned in force in 2016 and I even had 2 hoglets (first time I have ever seen one) and again in 2017 but I never take it for granted they will return so I always brace myself for possible no shows.

However 2018 has started well (seen 3 hogs already) albeit they were later appearing so I was getting a bit concerned but all good now.
