Well, that was a treat. Walking in Holland Park earlier, I noticed that a patch of the woodland area had been fenced off - and there, happily rooting and rummaging about, were four fine Wessex Saddleback pigs. That, surely, is just about the last thing you'd expect to see in West London - but there they were. My heart leapt - as whose would not? There are few more satisfying animals to watch - or to scratch, though in this case an electric fence rather ruled out that option. I shall be returning to gaze fondly at these fine beasts whenever I can.
