Wild Boar Sow (video), Forest of Dean


Wild Boar Sow, Forest of Dean, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This was taken last night. I took a number of photos, but the light was really poor under the tree canopy in the twilight, so I reached for the phone to try a bit of video. This is a small sow, probably parenting for the first time, accompanied by her six young (not in this video).
Top tip: Do not stand on a wasps nest that has just been unearthed by a wild boar, wearing trainers and cut-off trousers. I wondered what the weird humming noise was until my ankle was on fire with stings. I think the boar then probably wondered what the hopping, cursing human was all about too. It made the drive home ‘interesting’ too.
