Hi Nic,

I find hogs endearing full stop.

Well the hog house was vacant tonight but the hog that has spent the last 2 nights in there turned up about 10pm tonight so he must have hung out somewhere else today. I know they don’t use any one day nest for long so not a big surprise but it will be interesting to see if he stays there again tonight.

Your term on patrol is a great as this is exactly what it looked like – a hog checking his environment for intruders, anything unusual or a lady friend!

Your story about the hog sniffing your hand reminds we when I also went out a couple of years ago, a bit later then normal, to put out food only to realise a hog was nearby. I didn’t want to frighten it so I stood stock still and it came right up to my feet, had a good sniff and then moved on (probably didn’t like what it smelt!).

I haven’t seen the other hog that was running around all over the place last night but there is still time. Likewise I haven’t seen the previous resident of the hog house since last Thursday so hope its ok as it had been a regular visitor until the hog fight that same night.
