We knew we had foxes passing through but had not seen them. But now we are inspired to try harder. And indeed for Christmas Huw got a great present of a Trail Camera - one of those nifty camera trap gadgets they use on some wildlife programs to get images of shy creatures. Weatherproof it can be placed where you want and when triggered by warm bodies moving it takes photos or video, and with infra-red lights it can also work in the pitch black.
So we're hunting our illusive friends, and of course the birds and cats that are busy in our garden (and maybe badgers, and hedgehogs when they emerge from hibernation) . If we get any great images you can be sure we'll post them here.
