Hi Hogmeister,

Yes, I should have said ‘extra’ endearing! I did the same as you when the hog came up to me – kept really still. I wouldn’t want to habituate the hogs in any way to humans, so it isn’t something that I would want to encourage, but it just happened. Sounds like it was the same with you.

Re. the patrolling. They don’t seem to be here patrolling every night, so I guess they are patrolling someone else’s garden!

Very quiet last night when I was there to watch – haven’t checked the video yet. Only 2 hogs, but even so there was a biffing incident! And not content to biff the poor hog once, he went off and came back again to give an added extra biff, before dashing off again. Luckily the biffed hog wasn’t too upset and fairly quickly unrolled and went to tuck in to some food.
