Fox at his favourite spot

Still image for this video

Even in the day it still comes back

Still image for this video
Look at its beautiful bushy tail, did you know they like to wrap it around their face when sleeping so it keeps nice and warm on a cold day.

Oh the badger also seems to like this place

Still image for this video

Update 08.10.21

Guess who's rushing past the camera?

Still image for this video

Where is the hedgehog going?

Still image for this video

You have to be agile to come in here, fox is a champion at it

Still image for this video

One fox comes in, the other is reluctant and doesn't and other one leaves

Still image for this video

Tough cookie

Still image for this video
This fox must be a very tough cookie. The paw doesn't look well, but it manages to move around and even get food, by the look of it.

Checking out the decking on a very warm summernight

Still image for this video

New very shy fox, with deformed paw, having a drink. Approaching very carefully

Summer nights makes you thirsty

Still image for this video

Still image for this video

Look who's come to visit us again

Still image for this video

What's not to like about this beautiful fox, we can finally see it's beautiful face

Still image for this video

Thirsty again

Still image for this video

Our injured fox is getting better, see it slither under the gate

Still image for this video

Water is good here at school and off he goes

Still image for this video

Let's check out the camera

Still image for this video

Badger in .............. and badger out

Still image for this video

Someones NOT happy with the other hedgehogs presence, some territorial behaviour between two hedgehogs

Still image for this video

Better hide/roll into a ball, a hedgehog's way to survive an attack (bottom of the screen right you can see the ball breath)

Still image for this video

Still not happy, more fighting

Still image for this video

I need a drink

Still image for this video

Slightly camouflaged our defeated hedgehog leaves

Still image for this video

No, I'm going home, too wet!

Still image for this video

Update 01.07.21

Have you been digging the hole?

Still image for this video

Yes, this could be our digger

Still image for this video

What is it trying to catch

Still image for this video

Nearly nosediving to catch something

Still image for this video

Just a moment to relax

Still image for this video

Fox having a total bonkers moment

Still image for this video

Fox checking on the compost again, daddy long legs (crane fly) flying past

Still image for this video

That deserves a drink

Still image for this video

Taking a moment to 'relax and think'

Still image for this video

Off he goes (luckily his hind leg is healing again)

Still image for this video

Don't blink you might miss the speedy hedgehog

Still image for this video

Oh no, I forgot something

Still image for this video

This one is also in a hurry, what's going on

Still image for this video

Update 24.06.21

Start your morning with a refreshing drink Mr Fox

Still image for this video

Come night time, unfortunately there was almost no water left

Still image for this video
Look how the fox is using its paw to get the last traces of water out.

Another day, with more luck on having a drink

Still image for this video

Another opening for the fox to get through, see how he's slinking through it

Still image for this video

Mr Fox bouncing into the ground, just put on the accelerator

Still image for this video

Badger entering

Still image for this video

Don't worry I'm just passing through

Still image for this video

Another day coming back for more at what our school grounds have to offer

Update 11.06.21

Badgers & foxes some of them seem injured, because they are limping.

Handsome badger in the rain

Still image for this video

Just give it a shake

Still image for this video

Go or no go?

Still image for this video

Indicisive badger

Still image for this video
This one has a slight limp on the back leg.

Sorry, Mr Fox no school today, but you were on time

Still image for this video
Fox in bright daylight, notice how it is limping and not putting any weight on it. It looks a bit scruffy, hopefully it will be alright.

Same limping fox looking for a place to get in

Still image for this video

Not the best way out today

Still image for this video

Another day, walking slightly better

Still image for this video

Longing to get out

Still image for this video

Stunning juvenile fox

Update 21.05.2021

Badgers having a great time on our schoolgrounds.

Badger investigating

Still image for this video

Still not convinced

Still image for this video

That itch

Still image for this video

Sound up, badger shaking

Still image for this video

Going for it?

Still image for this video

Yep, going for it

Still image for this video

The Vine's Banquet

Still image for this video
Did you know that earthworms make out a big part of the badger's diet an important source of protein.

Do you want some as well?

Still image for this video

Excuse me! That is not allowed on our schoolgrounds, now leave!

Still image for this video
That's nature for you.

Fox trying to get out

Still image for this video
How many attempts do you think he will do to get out?

Another attempt

Still image for this video

Fox still struggling, badger no problems with it

Still image for this video

Fence biting might help

Still image for this video

Little bit of digging, maybe?

Still image for this video

Nearly there

Still image for this video

Work those hips

Still image for this video
How unbelievable bendy is this fox? Did you notice how long its tail is, not so bushy yet, it looks quite a young fox.

Badger posing and listening

Still image for this video
Do you notice how small and close to his head his ears are, well adapted for living in a burrow

What did the badger hear?

Still image for this video

Where is the food?

Still image for this video

Can you spot the hedgehog

Still image for this video

Update 07.05.2021

 

Having repositioned the cameras resulted in new fantastic footage of badgers sniffing and chewing food, put your volume up to get the full experience.

Badger sniffing for food

Still image for this video

He should work on his table manners smacking that loud

Still image for this video

Little bit later still going, he fully relies on his nose to find the food, because it is totally dark

Still image for this video

Looking elsewhere for food, not much luck though

Still image for this video

Hedgehog on the go

Still image for this video

Hedgehog looking for food

Still image for this video

Badger entrance

Still image for this video

Is there a badger party somewhere?

Still image for this video
Hopefully they social distance. These are three different badgers, can you see the difference?

Badger having a munch

Still image for this video
If you turn the volume up, you can hear it sniffing out the food and eat. It is pitch dark where it is, so it needs its nose to find the food.

Badger looking for food

Still image for this video

Just can't get enough of it

Still image for this video

Still image for this video

Still image for this video

Time to go

Still image for this video
Look how agile it is

Update 23.04.2021

Where are the earthworms?

Update 16.04.2021

Hedgehogs have come out of hibernation

Still image for this video

Hedgehog on a mission

Still image for this video
Hedgehogs are really speedy when they are walking. Having foxes and badgers visiting the schoolgrounds, they better walk fast, foxes and badgers being their main predators. Do you know what defence mechanism hedgehogs use to stay safe?

Update 26.03.21

Do you know what it is?

Still image for this video

Little wood mouse nibbling away

Still image for this video

Can you see how big its ears and eyes are all needed to make it a great nocturnal survivor

Still image for this video

Off it goes

Still image for this video
It must feel quite save eating its food on the spot, they normally would take it to their nest.

Still hungry, coming back for more

Still image for this video

Wood mouse facts or continue for badger and fox footage

A new badger came to visit

Still image for this video
This badger has one blind eye

Fox made a quick visit

Still image for this video

Still image for this video
Update 12.03.21

The badger is back

Still image for this video
To let other badgers know you passed by and this is your territory, you scent mark.

Keeping it's distance

Still image for this video

Our fox also made an appearance, look at his eyes.

Still image for this video
Update 05.03.2021

What is roaming around in the dark?

Still image for this video

Who is our new shy visitor

Still image for this video

Very shy indeed

Still image for this video

Now you can see our new visitor

Still image for this video

Our stunning visitor reveals itself

Still image for this video
As you can see the badger is using its great sense of smell to sniff out any food. As it is pitch dark, it is no wonder it bumps into our wildlife camera which doesn’t cause any interference with the animals.

Off it goes

Still image for this video
After hopefully having eaten enough food, he leaves again to find some more elsewhere, or maybe return to his sett.

Look who came back

Still image for this video

Have a look at how it left

Still image for this video

 

Can you guess which animal it is? Watch at the right side of the screen carefully, it disappears very quickly, maybe you need to play it more than once to see it.

Look at the lower right side

Still image for this video

Have you guessed what animal it is, then look at this clip to be sure
