Thanks to everyone for their comments about hogs in daylight hours. Unless we have hogs sharing a house (!), we believe that we have tracked the one in our “igloo” house which was seen out in the morning. We believe this is female. She appeared in the garden last night at 8.50 pm from the direction of the house – fed and drank and foraged around. After 20 minutes she re-appeared, went down the patio steps in a huge hurry and under the garden gate. No other hogs appeared. At 10.30 pm she returned, had lots more to eat and drink then headed off in the direction of the igloo. We put the patio lights full on and watched her go into the house. She re-appeared around midnight when 2 other hogs visited and was courted by a male. So far so good?
We are certainly keeping an eye out in the morning but haven’t seen any hogs since.
