Just took a peek in the hog houses. I have a snoozing hog in the home made hog house (be interested to see if I recognise it when it appears) but the hogitat remains empty.

When they are resident they usally pop out around 7.45ish within 10/15 minutes after I put out the food as I guess they can smell it. They then often return to the hog house after about 30 minutes and then come back out again when Its getting dark for their evening stroll.

I know it wouldn’t be good to see them out during the day but its nice to see them when there is still some daylight around as we head towards dusk as you can appreciate more what an attractive mammal a hog is.
