I saw one 2 days ago, about 8:10AM – we both froze for a while, after I backed off slowly it continued about its business.
It (she?) had a mouth full of short green twigs and disappeared into the wild strawberry thicket around the shed (beneath which I have long suspected hogs reside).
I’ve been keeping an eye out but I’ve not seen her/it again despite evidence of hogs all over the place. Have left out a saucer of cat food tonight in case this sighting was a sign that food is scarce.
There is plenty of water access and much of the garden is left wild. I have only ever left out pre hibernation food occasionally before – I don’t want them becoming dependent – any advice ?
