Surprise!

On Friday night I decided to set my trail camera up in my Nan’s garden. A few weeks back she noticed a hole had been dug underneath her fence and we weren’t that sure what had done it so I decided to set my trail camera up in her garden to find out. When I collected my camera yesterday morning and looked at my footage I was surprised to see that I had recorded a rat! This was the first time that I had properly recorded rats on my trail camera. We think I may have recorded more then one but we’re not sure.¬†Unfortunately I hadn’t set the settings on my trail camera right so I only have some screen shots. Here they are.

A return of the badgers!

Last Saturday night I returned to the badgers sett where I have recorded badgers in the past. The badgers which I recorded were the same ones I recorded many times last year and which featured on BBC Autumnwatch. At this time of the year the badgers are becoming more active and the young cubs are starting to emerge from the sett in the next few weeks. In the near future I hope to record the badger cubs around at this sett when they come out around late April and early May which I’m really looking forward too! At the most I recorded two different badgers however they weren’t as active as the ones I recorded last Autumn. Here is the footage that I got and there will be lots more to come over the next few weeks!
