Brilliant news. I hope that's not going to overwhelm the catering facilities. :)

I put out enough JS. Mostly all gone by the morning. Plus there are other sources of food. Am not the only one feeding them as some got markings.

All the juveniles seem to have moved on. Just getting adult ones now, but not so many visits.

Do the adults push the youngsters out after a certain time to protect the limited food available?

Not that i have noticed JS. in fact during the Autumn months i have noticed that the adults will move elsewhere so the young ones can feed.

I've had no actual sightings but while walking the garden this afternoon I came across two separate CCs which is encouraging. Of course seeing the hog would be much better so I live in hope. :) :hedgehog:
