It's been a fantastic winter for watching wildlife, none more so than on my land where I have a feeding site and an array of bushnell cams setup to record everything that goes on. We've seen hooded crows, greenfinches, mistle thrushes, wood mice, badgers, foxes and our cats!
Over the weeks we've got to know a fox named "Smudge" (dark patch on the base of the tail) named by my wife. This fox is very comfortable at the feeding area and clearly feels safe as it sits and even lies down to eat some of the food. He/she (I think its a she!) also likes the smell and taste of the Natureview Cam and gives it a good lick...... I often hide the food under stones to avoid it all being taken by birds during the day and in the update video below you will see the Smudge digging for the treats, great footage. She also visits during the day too, showing that wonderful red coat in great condition, check out the videos:
I've also introduced a "Creature Cam" to the site to capture the smaller mammals and creatures that frequent our land when we aren't looking. So far in one 12hr stint we captured 12 species of bird and mammal on the cam, with the star of the show being the wood mouse who worked tirelessly to stash all the peanuts away for later:
