Camera Trap.

A friend asked about the many small scrapings beside dung pats in a grass field. She wonders if they are made by badgers, but we are doubtful they are big enough for a badger, so we set up a camera trap to try and find the answer. The first image is full size to show you the scene, but the rest have been cropped for clarity.

The buzzard features in several of the images, maybe mole heaps are a good source of worms.

Mr Fox comes at night when the hens are safely shut up – but that’s another topic.

Can anyone identify these eyes? We are not sure who they belong to.

We still do not know what animal is making the scrapes – so hopefully there will be more to follow.
