This is the first fox that I have seen here in several months (first video below) the fox was really very cautious.
The badgers emerged this morning around 3am when the windy wet weather abated.
A muntjac enjoys a well ripe apple (2nd video) but makes it look very difficult to eat it whole.
I have seen many many fallow deer on camera (also eating apples) and also I saw the the albino physically with 5 of its herd yesterday morning on their way back to Traitors Ford cover
The badger emergence was at 10.52 pm last evening, earlier in the week it was around 6pm, so a very variable badger emergence.
A very wet week just passed with high winds and significant rainfall.
Below are two short videos the first video is of an argument between a carrion crow and a buzzard over who gets to eat a road kill rabbit.
I put the rabbit and camera out 24 hours earlier and nothing touched the rabbit for 24 hours or more, however at least 4 different badgers found and investigated it on the first evening. The following day the crows and the buzzard took turns in feeding off it and then after dark there was one other visitor during the night she is captured on the second video below.(this camera has sound and picks up the protestations of the crow very well) the date and time are incorrect and no longer adjustable the video was taken 27th Dec 2013
The buzzard seemingly impervious to the rain.
The badger emergence time has changed yet again now 5.15pm
I was delighted to see that the jay that lives here has found a new mate after losing the last one to a kestrel strike
The badger emergence is now between 7pm and midnight!!!
Last night was extremely windy 60-70mph winds with driving rain which surprisingly did not deter the badgers from emerging.
The first badger up for a handful of peanuts was our little friend the most watched badger here this year as she is the first to emerge and the first to look for hidden peanuts and stars in the video below.
Fallow deer and muntjac have also been seen every evening and some time first thing in the morning.
The small wet badger in the video below eventually succeeds in moving the big stone!
