Nocturnal noises off

The hills are alive.....with nocturnal activity. Our Westie, Winnie, loves the evenings now as the air is full great scents and smells and she can happily spend an hour or so on our doorstep - as seen here - drinking in the night air. Occasionally she will run off barking like mad or more infrequently, but more worryingly for us, is when she darts off silently. Or as silently as a slightly rotund Westie can be.

The cause in part of the nocturnal noises will be wild boar (chingiale) and also porcupines. We see evidence of their digging in the grove and can no longer have bulbs in the garden as they all get dug up and eaten.
