The quality of images taken with a Trail camera is not too good but in lot's of ways they are more interesting. I have been leaving a camera out somewhere where I have found Otter spraint in the hope of getting some footage of them. When I checked the camera files today after it had been left out for 48 hours, it was really interesting. No Otters but several times the resident fox passed in front, making it's way in both directions both at night and during the day. Great to see it. I am not one of those people that doesn't like Foxes, I love them in fact. I hope this particular animal is safe here, I don't think it will be shot at, trapped or poisoned. I have no idea what it is finding to eat but there are rabbits around so it may get lucky now and then. They will eat berries and fruit, beetles, earthworms, rodents and of course birds, not to mention any carcass that they may be lucky to find. Filming it on the camera though was brilliant because it obviously means that any otter passing in front of the camera would be captured as well. Also filmed was the resident Grey Heron and surprisingly a Cormorant. So in this small area over the last 3 weeks or so I have seen and photographed, Fox, Kingfisher - both male and female - Green Sandpiper, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Cormorant, Robin, Song Thrush, Meadow Pipit, Teal, Moorhen and of course a Stonechat pair. I filmed something during the night and I have absolutely no idea what it is...... can anyone out there identify it on the grainy and blurry infra - red image. It looks like a cross between a bird and a squirrel!
