Mr Badger Works for his Dinner

December 22, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Having watched the badgers hoovering up loose peanuts from the garden path, I wanted to see some more active foraging.  I placed an upturned flower pot on the path with some nuts on top and a flat rock with nuts on top and underneath in the same place that I had filmed them before.  3 nights of appalling wind and rain followed with no visits to the site.  Last night I got lucky and the little video clips have been assembled below.  You can see how he had no trouble moving the props around.

On a technical note, the infra-red light on the trailcam has taken to cutting out after a few seconds probably as the batteries are getting a bit flat.  Also, the brightness of the light is insufficient to give a very nice image.  I took some technical advice from Mike Leigh-Mallory and Yusuf Akhtar and I have ordered an infra-red floodlight from eBay.  I hope to drastically improve the lighting and we'll see if the video quality improves much.  Watch this space!
