Another nursing mother

Another nursing mother with hoglets collected this morning.

They were found while a plant hire yard was being tidied up. As the yard is all concrete and enclosed, with heavy plant and machinery being moved around, it was not suitable for them to be left, and nowhere nearby was suitable as it was in the middle of a large industrial estate.

The nest was under a tarpaulin full of leaves, so the nest was scooped up and placed into a box and brought home.

Mother and babies are now in a quiet place so they can settle down, and will have minimum disturbance in the hope that the mother does not reject the babies due to the stress of being disturbed and transported.
