Launching Wildlife Watch!

Josh Beeston

Opening up wildlife's secret world has been really exciting! We have purchased camera traps, similar to the ones used in wildlife documentaries, and placed them in various locations to see what wildlife is there.

We've placed them well out of sight of humans, partly to limit risks of theft, and partly so that we don't get any footage of people. They're waterproof, and the batteries last many weeks, so we can leave them and minimise how much we disturb areas. It's hugely exciting each time we bring the memory cards in and start to view the footage, it feels a little like we're fishing, seeing what we have caught on camera!

We placed one camera directly facing a badgers' set, and filmed over 400 videos in a week! We caught some amazing clips of badgers scratching, communicating, noticing our camera... In other locations we picked out well-worn animal trails, scanned wider areas such as fields, or placed them by water sources.

Animals have noticed our cameras, which make interesting videos in their own way, but the vast majority of the videos have been of our wildlife behaving naturally, and it's a delight to see!
