You'll probably be drawn to looking at the fox. Follow it as it winds through the trees then appears to stop for a second almost out of site beyond the trees on the right. It then suddenly turns and, at a run, exits the shot. But why the change of direction? Now view again but this tim... read more

I collected the camera early this evening to see what had been going on over that last week. It's been strapped to a tree on the path behind the Ruston Benchall week, directed along the main path towards the turns that take you to the Ruston Bench or behind the Reed Bed.

It was always set to activate overnight only. However, it began to fire up at almost any time of day and... read more

There are three pictures this month, taken on the 2nd, 19th and 25th. Each is taken a little later in the day, the first at 07:38, the second at 07:46 and the last at 08:06. It is still a surprise to me how much the light can change in the impression the light makes. We start, as always at ... read more
