http://i70.servimg.c Result with the cams.

A couple of 30 second clips of a badger two nights running at almost the same time of night.

I've not loaded these on to Youtube yet but onto my Flickr account. If it doesn't allow access I can put them on Youtube. In the second clip the badger goes right up to the trail cam.

Tomorrow I am going to re-position them in the hope of more activity.

Lai those are fantastic clips and so clear, just amazing and the second one where she ( I think it's a she, smaller head) comes right up to the cam is so exciting. You must be so chuffed with those. I am in a very smiley mood after seeing those.

Thanks Littlewid and WS. I was completely chuffed with that despite having to look through over 150 clips What a Face today if it just stops raining for a bit I want to put both cams back but actually in where the entrance to the sett is, I couldn't access it properly, not as agile as I was!!!

WS you'd be amazed at what you would catch wherever you put it. The other 148 clips were a tiny little mouse all through the night helping himself to the peanuts, also a bunny during the day and of course a squirrel.

Thanks Doogs. That little mouse should be completely stuffed the amount of times he went back Laughing

I moved the cams and caught the back end of a badger on one and discovered the other had flat batteries

So moved them again and will collect today to see if I have more luck but I think I was slightly out with my location. Plenty of time over the b/h weekend to reposition though.

Thanks everyone. So I moved them and got the backside of a badger but at 11.30am so that's interesting. Repositioning again later today with some raisins not peanuts and we'll see what happens.

I also got a tailess cat during the day and a little bird collecting nesting material, haven't ID'd it yet but it was lovely to watch.

I am sure that little Mouse couldn't believe his luck, he must have been really stuffed bless him.
The backside of a Badger is better than no Badger but a Badger at 11.30 am is really unusual Lai, I wonder why he was out and about at that time. A tailless cat and a little bird collecting nesting material you are getting all sorts on your cams but it is lovely and must be so exciting to see what goes on. Looking forward to hearing/seeing what else you manage to capture......lets hope some foxes as well.

I'm really enjoying seeing who passes by these cams each day Very Happy Today we bought the raisins and were already to go but it will now have to be tomorrow as we had a drama here today with 2 little ducklings that I found behind the polytunnel. Duck

Tiny weeny weeny, a day or two old I guess and all alone, mum and other siblings nowhere to be seen, not that I was aware of them anyway. So I left them for an hour to see if anyone appeared and then decided to catch them. I put them in a large flower tub with some grass and water and had to decide what to do, to leave them would mean certain death, no mum to teach them what to do and the herons/crows/jays etc all looking for an easy meal.

Pete was for trying to hand rear them but on checking the RSPB site that looked tricky, so we drove to RSPCA Stapeley where they have a wildlife centre, the girl said they had several in and our two would be put with them and cared for. I have 2 ref numbers for them and will check on Tuesday to see how they are doing.

So that was our afternoon/evening - they were totally gorgeous and I took a few photos with my phone as Pete was diriving, once they've uploaded to Dropbox I'll post a couple.

Oh my Goodness Lai, I wonder how they got seperated from their mum, I thought if they usually wandered off mum tends to call them all or was this an inexperienced mum who just wandered off in the belief all chicks would follow, or had she lost more chicks and just was a bit disinterested or were the chicks stuck and couldn't get out of where they were? whatever it's a real shame they are not with their mum but it sounds as though you have made the right decision especially as the RSPB site says its hard too hand rear them. I think my instincts would have been the same as Petes but now at least they have a good fighting chance of surviving and they will be added to another family of chicks and thats how it would have been. So fingers crossed for them both and look forward to hearing how they are getting on when you phone up and also look forward to the pics, I bet they are just so adorable.
Also a huge well done to you and Pete for saving them Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Group Hug

I wish I knew what had happened Littlewid, it could have been an inexperienced mum or she left and these 2 didn't follow. The problem is that our garden is part of the walled garden, the wall is about 8 feet high so birds and wildfowl that can fly can get in and out. Ducklings and chicks can't. I normally open the gate and let them out when I find them so that they can get down to the stream. On this occasion I never saw them or mum so have no idea what happened.

Anyway I feel happier that they have chance to survive, although I loved the idea of hand rearing them it would be heart breaking to fail.

I picked these gorgeous little ducklings up and put them in a bucket




Bucket photos to follow once i've remembered how to use Dropbox

...... just added Dropbox, so here are a couple more

Pete was driving so me, my mobile and the ducklings were on the move What a Face







Now this morning we have a complete disaster. I went out to feed the birds and could hear a duck - you can guess! Mrs duck is sitting on top of an 8ft wall and 6 ducklings are below her, obviously the 2 we rescued were hers and had become separated yesterday. So I think okay I will let the ducklings out as last year, it took me ages as Pete is somewhere in the woods with Tamu, so there I am ushering ducklings while Mrs Duck feigns an injury to distract me from her ducklings. I manage to open the gate and have all 6 near it (this is after sometime of to-ing and fro-ing) ..... I get 4 or maybe 5 out and 1 breaks away and she follows it, so now I have 4 or 5 outside calling her and I am thinking I have to be quick here. She stayed with the 1 but they went the wrong way and it hid under some bushes, she then decided to follow the calls of the others and went to find them. This leaves me with 1 ..... now I have to try and catch it and it will be another rescue run to Stapeley. Regrettably I don't think she will return for 1 as she has the other 4 or 5 to take to the river. I say 4 or 5 as it was chaos and I can't be sure how many went out but it was definitely 4, if not I have 2 to find.

I am so upset and it makes you realise when you should or should not intervene - yesterday perhaps I should have waited until this morning?

Please do not feel too bad Mrs Kipia. You did what you thought was right, and I believe that many times in life we are damned if we do, damned if we don't. What's most important is that you had good intentions.

And who knows? Maybe those little ducklings would have come to worse if you hadn't saved them; as in, maybe mum wouldn't have come for them in time and they wouldn't still be here at all.

Best of luck with the latest situation with the ducklings and mum.

Gorgeous pictures by the way. Thanks for sharing and for (as always) being so caring Group Hug

Thanks GR. I am keeping an ear open for the duckling calling and then will mount a rescue, it has gone quiet for now, but we have a lot of crows/jays/jackdaws around at the moment and sadly a little duckling would be a good meal for them.

GOOD NEWS UPDATE

Oh what a huge relief .... I could hear a duckling calling so walked down to the sound and even better could hear Mrs Duck the other side of the wall calling very loudly, and to top it all I saw 2 ducklings so I was right about either 4 or 5 getting out earlier.

The long and the short of it was I opened the gate and ushered them towards it with Mrs Duck still calling and one shot out and the other went the other way but I was quick and whilst it was amongst the nettles running alongside the wall I picked it up, no stings and one safe duckling, quickly so I didn't touch it too much I put it outside to meet up with Mrs Duck and the others. She now has 6 out of 8 with her, okay so the other 2 are at the RSPCA centre but they are safe.

I am so relieved and quite exhausted by it all

Duck Duck Lai I think you have done an amazing job, ok two are at the RSCPA but they will be well looked after and as GR says maybe that could be better for them in the long run. OK mum came back for the other two and was calling but she also seems a little hap hazzard at looking after them, so at least two will be reared to adulthood and hopefully the ones she has will be too but their lives do seem a little precarious with her. Yes they have run you ragged but you have been a complete Like a Star @ heaven and definitely deserve a You the man

The pics of the two little ducklings in their bucket are really cute I love you I love you

Hopefully your weekend will now be a little more relaxed, put your feet up and have a glass of drunken

Thanks Littlewid, I am making myself feel better about the 2 that we whisked away to the RSPCA by hoping that they will survive for sure, whilst the other 6 are a bit hit and miss. We walked down to the river earlier and no sign of anyone but that is a good thing as hopefully they are all together in the undergrowth on the river out of sight from the herons.

Relaxing with a cranberry juice at the mo so all well cheers

Not only is it yummy but it's good for you too Littlewid Very Happy

We put the two trail cams out again last night with some raisins, hoping to catch the badger/s so will keep you updated on this.

We want to try and get the kingfishers, foxes, mink/otter (debate on this one) we know we unfortunately have mink and they have decimated the water voles but when the Wirral & Cheshire badger group were here we found some spraint under the bridge and the debate was is it otter or mink? So we are thinking a trail cam in the vicinity might catch whoever it is. Imagine if it is otter we would be so excited.

We need more trail cams for sure - oh and more hours in a day Very Happy
