Wild Boar

A Wild Boar piglet on a feeding foray in a stand of mature beech. This photo was taken a number of weeks ago, but this afternoon I enjoyed watching a group of three sows along with at least two litters of piglets feeding beneath the low canopy of the bracken. It was such a hot afternoon that when they reached a small pool of water, the adults simply led down in it to cool down. The piglets could barely keep their heads above the water but nevertheless they splashed about and cooled down in their own way.
