My new toy!

I treated myself to a Bushnell trophy cam not too long ago and gave it its first try out in a patch of woods at Stackpole a few nights ago. I had seen badger tracks and latrines around so I set it up and left it for two nights. I'm very happy with the results. It also picked up a few mice going about their business but the photos weren't that great.

A very healthy looking fox on the headland near Broadhaven South, and my first otter sighting for a while made for a good walk. A noisy family of herons in the treetops near the eight arch bridge and a sparrowhawk that nearly took my head off also put in appearances.

I had a lovely trip out to Skomer a few weeks ago and was pleased to see more porpoises than I've ever seen before. It seemed that every time I looked out to sea there were a few dorsal fins in view. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be able to share a few more shots from the trophy cam.

  1. Congratulations!
    Your work with the badger have rewarded us with very good results. Thanks a million for sharing.

    What you say about porpoises encourages me to plan a trip to the island of Skomer.

    Very best regards.
