    Many years ago I used to farm free range Tamworth pigs, looking at the markings and shape of these they look like wild boar domestic crossbreds

    Apparently these arent crosses, a nearby Estate tried to introduce Iron Age Pigs, they escaped about 5 or 6 years ago and have been living wild ever since, its a LONG way to the nearest domestic pig.

    Funny you should say that. When they wanted "Iron Age " pigs for the Butser Hill project in Petersfield, Hampshire in the 1970's they crossed Tamworths with wild boar.
    The first generation crosses gave basically a wild boar colouring with slightly less hair and a modified body shape. My Tamworth boar crossed with a saddlebackXLarge white used to give white pigs with dark blotches similar to your pictures.

    Evening Dan,
    A nice group of pigs, just coming up to their second year i think. No sign of mum, which makes me think she has just kicked them out to make way for some new piglets.
    If you don't have a realy hard winter, you could have a lot of piglets come the spring.
    Great to watch, thanks for the clip.

    We have been filming this group in 2 different location, from what we can see there is 5 in the group, the locations are around 500yrds apart.

    In the first clip there is a larger animal comes in to the shot and pushes the other 2 away, could this be the dominant sow?

    There is possibly another 2 groups of similar numbers on the estate.

    Its looking like some sport should be had soon

    I have about 170 clips on the card, its great watching them.

    No i would stick with my first guess, looks like you have a young family group. The animal that pushes the others out of the way, looks like a young boar.

    Cool, that means I can shoot any one of them.

    NV looks like the only way, they are proper jump jacks, even the IR coming on has them spooked.
