My local hogs (Northants) are quite often seen in daylight but not during daytime . They regularly head for the diner on my lawn between 7pm and 9pm when it’s still daylight. Two years ago on my (mid-summer) birthday I was enjoying some wine on the patio and sat and watched 5 hoggies chasing each other at around 8pm. They all live very close by (2 in my garden) so I’m obviously their first port of call each night.

Daylight and daytime are two very different things when the nights are short.
