Some good news about the four hoglets that came in late yesterday evening after mum had been AWOL all day.
Mum turned up, some 28 hours after she left them, and returned to the nest. She was quickly brought in, and reunited with her hoglets.
She was very reluctant to let them feed for quite some time, but they persisted and she relented. She is now happily nursing them, which is great.
They will remain with us in a nursing box now until they are big enough to leave mum.
I love a happy ending.
