    My sister also has visiting hogs (4 at one time recently). She uses a shiny stainless steel dish for water and often sees the visitors drinking. However one hog was captured on video biffing the dish quite vigorously – we reckon it must have seen its own reflection and decided it was a hog who needed dealt with.

    I feed my visitors a mix of dry hog food along with meaty dog food. A field mouse regularly visits my own feeding station, it helps itself to the dry hog food and I think it must be stashing it somewhere. A couple of nights ago, the trailcam caught it removing and running off with a large lump of the dog meat. The piece of meat must have been half the size of the mouse, but it managed to make off with it. Never realised they were such carnivores – or so strong!

    In the past week have seen first swallow and house martins – a good sign, despite the chill air off the Moray Firth.


    Talking of mice. My trail cameras caught this.

    They live in the drystone wall and under the hedge. Seems to be quite a colony and breeding well. Woodmice i believe.
