    Just a quick question. One of my hogs is very low to the ground!! could this be a sign of babies? I am ever optimistic – and more to the point my neighbour, who is interested in hogs but doesn’t feed them, has just reported babies in his garden! I think too far away to be ‘mine’ – especially as my camera hasn’t picked up any in my garden yet!

    Hi DwarfHog

    Do you mean low to the ground and long (which I call ‘slinking’)? If so I have seem males and females do that. I always think they are trying to avoid being noticed, especially by the cameras! Which often seems to work.

    If your neighbour has seen babies, unless your garden is really huge or there is a large distance between your gardens, it is very likely the same hog visits both gardens. Possibly the nest was in or nearer to his garden. But I would imagine that you will be seeing some hoglets soon.


    Oh!! I was hoping that she was getting a bit tired!! Yes, slinking describes it very well! How do they manage to avoid the cameras? my food goes but there is limited evidence of hog activity!! that invisibility cloak again – I blame JK Rowling!!

    Our neighbours garden isn’t that far away – we are a ‘modern’ estate with small back gardens and no front gardens although we do have the river and nature reserve to compensate – but the two gardens don’t link, he is across the ‘courtyard’ from ours but then again we have seen hogs in the front – looking very bewildered on the hard surface!!

    I live in hope…
