Last week, at school, I was approached by one of the science teachers who told me that they’d put up a trail camera in the schools Eco area. They decided to do this as they’d noticed over the past few weeks there were quite a few dead things about, one of which was a mole. Today I asked one of the science teachers if I could have a look at the footage they had captured from the two nights they’d set it up. When I saw the footage I was delighted to see that they’d recorded some fox cubs! Here is some of the footage which the science technician had recorded on her trail camera.
Over the past few weeks I have had the chance to have my trail camera set up in my garden most nights. At first I had a hedgehog visiting every few days but over the past week he has been coming every night. Unfortunately though he hasn’t been around to the last two nights but hopefully he will visit again some time in the next week. I’ve been able to get some footage of the hedgehog on my trail camera, at the moment there is only one visiting but in the past I’ve had up to three.
I attract hedgehogs to my garden with dog food and meal worms which seem to be there favorite. I’m looking forward to filming he or she again over the next few weeks again, here’s some of my most recent best footage.
