Latest Bushnell Trophy Cam Clips From Somerset

I’ve just returned to Somerset after a few days away and downloaded the clips from a couple of my Bushnell camera traps.  Both had been out for three days, one by the river, the other at the end of one of the meadows which we have just planted with trees. Before I left, I put a small pile of peanuts in front of the meadow camera, hoping to attract a mammal or two, particularly a badger. On my return this ...

They look pretty well settled around the same spot. I'm ...

I find an Otter Holt in my garden!

Hello everyone! A couple of days ago I was putting the finishing touches to a few nest boxes I had erected around the garden when I heard kingfishers calling from the stream in the south. Of course, I had to have a wee snoop, and made my way down to the water to carefully peak over the bank for a glimpse of them. Once I reached the brook I was surprised to find that their calls were coming from a ...
