I’ve come across a number of litters of Wild Boar piglets this winter. This family was photographed yesterday, and these are probably among the first born of this season. The other piglets I’ve seen so far this year are all significantly smaller. Lots of early arrivals this year, possibly due to the good availability of food they had in the autumn.
This video shows two male Wild Boar during the rut in September 2013. Much of the action wasn’t possible to be filmed as it took place in thick foliage, but this video gives a flavour. Male boar tend to be harder to see than the females, and to the best of my knowledge, they’ve never been filmed in rut in Britain before.
