Stealth-cam succeeds

The Safari put the stealth-can back out in the copse near the pond last night. there is a bit of a track alongside the brook and a gap in the hedge where a bridge crosses said brook into another field - we set up overlooking this more open area...what would the morning download reveal? And will this WiFi connection be able to cope with uploading it to blogger to show you?
It did work - but on the first one you'll have to be quick...

what is this - we=re pretty ssure of the ID but what do you think?

What's snuffing around in the copse? All is revealed at the end.

Lapwings were heard 'pewiting' this morning on the way down the hill to retrieve the stealth-cam but in the much less sunny conditions and being a little later than yesterday it wasn't as birdy although we did see the pair of Grey Partridges again but not the best of views, they're very skittish and take flight as soon as they see us which is invariably before we see them! A scan of the fields gave us another Roe Deer skulking back into the woods from one of the fields with a gas canon, didn't pick up pace when it went off only a couple of hundred yards from it!
Where to next? Back out into those fields.
In the meantime let us know what's been sneaking around in the dark in your outback.

Some nice footage there Dave, although despite a couple of viewings I couldn't see anything in the 1st one?

Hi Monika - you're sneaking ahead again, spring is horribly slow here, no sign of it yet!
Camera is this one - GMYLE (TM) 8MP Infrared Outdoor Digital Scouting Stealth Trail Hunting Game Wildlife Nature Camera Cam - got it from Amazon

Cliff - there's a fox in the distance in the first 2 seconds!

Cheers

I missed the fox in the first one too, will have to look again...

Yes, we've been very lucky with some awesome early spring weather!

Wow, that's a mouthful of a name for what looks like a pretty small (in size) camera. Looks like a lot of fun, though, I'm going to have to check that out....
