Hi hogmeister, yes I have a trailcam which is a bit temperamental at the moment! And it eats batteries as if they were going out of fashion! I have just invested in rechargeable ones so hope the cost will break even soon. I have a hog house and although hogs have been in and moved the nest material around they haven’t stayed. But they are taking the food and there is a lot of snuffling going on under the choysia! This is our first positive year with hedgehogs although we know they have been around or passing through before. I live just off a nature reserve along the river black water in Essex so if they were going to be anywhere it would be here!
