Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Our little hog friend of last year hasn't reappeared Reply To: Our little hog friend of last year hasn't reappeared


Hi Nic

Digger knows how to make you worry doesn’t she, how awful about the idiotic marking of the hogs, sounds a bit like twitchers having their lists of birds to spot rather than just enjoying seeing the birds themselves for their own sakes. Trainspotting for the animal kingdom, taken to extremes. No easy answer, this is all indicative of modern life I think, very sad.

Mealworms are a big worry, wondering if that had an impact on all the hogs I saw last year who disappeared so quickly, remember at least one of them seemed to have a mobility problem of some sort even though it was quick to rush away after appearing on camera. Hedgehog rescue that used to be in Cardiff used to hold open days & it was always live mealworms they fed the hogs in front of us all.

The blood parasite your poor cat had sounds really awful. My friend’s greyhound is slightly improved but still a long way to go. He’s an ex-racer rescue, had no idea how to be a dog when they took him in, always been in a kennel or racing, very sad. Big black boy, like a little horse.

I wish I had seen the water vole, all I saw was the photo they took, they thought it was a harvest mouse (!) after surfing the internet, I put them straight having seen them at Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust years ago.

Hilarious that Horace is clean with his poo, so nice that you’re still watching hog activity at all. Set the camera last night & just saw Frankie’s friend Cat, & then when it was light a lot of birds. Will try again tonight but think it’s unlikely I’ll see any hogs, very sad.

A huge swathe of the countryside less than half a mile from here is being built on, we were on the edge between city & countryside but now it’s disappearing beneath a mass of expensive ‘executive’ houses. Increased traffic will be an additional hazard to hogs & cats, there’s actually a hedgehog warning sign on a roundabout a little further up the road towards the former countryside, been there since I moved here in 2007. Not that anybody will have bothered to slow down or watch out for them sadly.

I live in hope of seeing a hog again one day!!
