    Hi Katzeye

    That is so strange, I just wrote a reply to you and it seems to have disappeared! So, I’ll try again!

    I wonder whether your new nest is a nest for babies. It seems unlikely that a hog would build such a comprehensive nest in this weather otherwise. It may also explain why ‘she’ is sleeping in the outer chamber. A male has recently taken to sleeping in my feed box and has only taken very minimal bedding in. If it is a nest for babies you will need to be very careful not to disturb them, because a Mother can desert her babies when they’re tiny if disturbed.

    Fingers crossed for hoglets, sounds an ideal location for them!


    Indeed Dwarfhog, a much sought after plot evidenced by 30 years of regular attendance by many hogs.

    Yes Nic, I always leave my hog visitors alone to do their own thing. It is sufficient to see them from time to time and know that they are thriving. In return they have virtually stripped my garden of the larger slugs. My hosta is now about 4 feet across and is totally unmolested.
