That’s very interesting Catherine. Perhaps they come out more often than we realise? The only other time I was surprised to see this was some years ago when a female had hoglets in our garden (unknown to us). We were alerted by some odd noises in the undergrowth and were amazed to see 4 tiny hoglets out in the bright hot midsummer sun having a little play around. After about 10 minutes or so they just went back in to the nest. The mother did not appear but we think we heard her snoring! Not long after, she brought them out in the evening to forage – we had left a cooked lamb bone out on the patio for the starlings and were taken aback to see mother and all four hoglets tearing the meat off the bone!
