    This year’s visitors put in their first appearance in our back garden at 1850 on 17th March and the following evening a male was dancing merrily around a female on our front path in both areas of which we put hedgehog food, calciworms and, of course, fresh water every evening.

    We have CCTV cameras front and back and although the pictures are of fairly poor quality, their shapes are reasonably clear and their meanderings and antics are very distinct when played back at 32 times normal speed.

    Hi BazP

    It’s great to hear you have hogs back there – and a male and female, even better! Fingers crossed for the patter of tiny hoglet feet later on!

    By the way, the jury is still out re. calci-worms. It may be that they actually have too much calcium in them – so an imbalance the other way from mealworms which may cause other problems. It isn’t necessary to feed the hogs anything other than cat/dog/hog food, so the way I see it, if there is any doubt, it’s best not to offer them calci-worms either.

    32 times normal speed! That must be quite comical seeing them all move around that quickly.

    Good luck with the hogs and happy (speedy) hog watching!
