Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the end of the summer of 2017.

At least two Badgers at sett

Second Badger at sett from Ron Bury on Vimeo.

A second Badger made an appearance at the Badger sett in the early hours of Friday 25th February. I think that one of them is a Boar responding to scent marking by the Badger I believe to be a Sow. Mind you, it's all guessing as it's difficult to analyse with infra-red video clips, especially when each one is only 15 seconds long.

As I said before, I'm hoping there are young in the sett which will come above ground in early April if all is well. The sett has only three main entrances and is probably not that large underground, so I don't think that there will be many permanent occupants.

I called this second clip "Wood Mouse hunting Badger" but I'm not being very serious!

I hope the Lizard I saw yesterday found a warm bed for the night because we had a frost early today.
So much for spring. Mind you, it's been quit pleasant today so far, though not as warm.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
