Barton Marina.

Last week, I heard about a rare goose that had been spotted at Barton Marina. Today I eventually went there with my camera. The cape barren goose is not normally seen in this country and is native to Australia. Here is a link to the Burton Mail article – http://www.burtonmail.co.uk/News/Rare-Australian-goose-spotted-at-Barton-Marina-20130627170836.htm .
I hope you enjoy the pictures and I have also added a few other pictures of the more common birds which can be spotted there.

As you can see it was smaller than the canadian geese.

New badger footage!

After returning to the badger sett on Saturday, for the third time, I finally got the footage I wanted! Previous times when I visited I had the settings wrong on my trail camera so the videos didn’t come out very well or I just got pictures. I got this footage with my motion detect trail camera after placing a pile of nuts in front of it. I hope you enjoy the videos and  click here for more badger footage which is on my YouTube channel.
