Hog, Mouse and Rat Videos

I’ve been catching up on some of the camera trap videos I have shot.

Here’s a roundup:

Little Wood Mouse


Drinking hogs and swimming rats. The rat loved doing laps of the pond.



Church Returns

Church the hedgehog was the first hog we released for Cardiff Hedgehog Rescue last year.

Last night an unidentified hog appeared ion the cameras. Much to my delight it was Church. She’s doing well, had a few ticks which I had to remove (hate them) and she weighed 714g.

This is her now

This her been weighed last year









This is some video I caught of year building her nest on the cams last year. She didn’t stay there for the winter though. No idea where she went. They bury themselves so well I imagine it’s impossible to find them.


A Foxy Visitor and A New Page

I put out the trail cam down the side of the house last night to try and see where the hedgehog that appears there comes from. I had a great surprise after the pictures of cats when I saw this

Her ears seem a little strange, not sure if tips are missing or it’s just the angle of the shot.

I have put the trail cam out again tonight and some food to try and tempt it back. I’m trying dog food, peanuts and sultanas. Fingers crossed she becomes a regular.

I have also added a new page – Blue Tits 2012 – where I am going to show the story of our nesting blue tits, hopefully all the way from nest building to fledging!

Project 365

I’ve finally caught up with all my photo processing (well nearly 🙂 ).

I’ve now completed and uploaded my first Project 365. I have taken a photo a day since my birthday last year so this is my 42nd year in photos. Some reflect what happened that day, others are just shots to make sure I got a photo. It is quite a large undertaking and it is surprising difficult to make sure you get a decent photo everyday.

I hope you enjoy it. Either click on the tab above or click here

Feels like Spring

First off, apologies for the lack of blogs, a mixture of hospital tests and a new puppy have curtailed time available.

Well to day really felt like spring sprung. The sun was out, and everything is bursting, 1st bluebells, buds bursting and lots of buzzing.

A Ruby Tiger Moth caterpillar had got itself tangled in a spider web so I set it free

The ivy was busy with this Eristalis pertenax

And as I was photographing the hoverfly I was lucky enough to catch this Bombus hypornum emerging from the ivy, I guess it was coming out of hibernation.

The Hedgehogs are all doing well, a few posts of them to come.

I have loads more posts to do, so hopefully as things calm down I can get to them all.
