A diary with a difference…..

A tail of three little pigs…

Flat Holm Islands newest arrivals. Our three little Tamworth pigs were surprisingly calm on the boat from Cardiff on Monday night. The sun was setting fast and to make matters worse a thick cloud bank stood between ourselves and the Island. We landed in thick fog and by the time these little ones were on the tractor trailer it was dark and they were asleep. The fog on the island was so thick that we could barely see the light on the lighthouse from the pigs garden.  We gave the 3 little fellas a feed and some water and got them tucked into their straw beds. In the morning they awoke to the sound of gulls. They were pretty nervous at first but within two hours they were digging, eating, drinking and sleeping, not to mention waggling their curly little tails. Brilliant!
