Wildschwein. Eine Bache, die bereits 7 Tage alte Frischlinge führt, beim Aufsammeln und Eintragen sowie Ablegen und Sortieren von Nestmaterial am Nistplatz. Anschließend ruht sie darin. Zerstreut liegendes Nestmaterial wird mit den Vorderbeinen an den Nestrand gescharrt und mit dem Rüssel festgedrückt.
The film shows the behaviour pattern during nest building of a wild sow, who already has a litter of 7-day old piglets. First we see the collection and transportation, depositing and sorting of building material, then we are shown how the sow wriggles into the finished nest and rests. The sow scratches any scattered building material towards the nest with the forelegs and presses it firmly into position with the snout. The film concludes with nest building movements of 5-days old piglets in the litter nest.
