Two Roe Deer and a Fox at the birch log



Two Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus) at the log this time. If you look carefully at the head of the first animal, you can just make out the buds of new antlers which make very rapid growth around the end of January.

The second animal could also be a buck but no clear view of its head.

Both of them pull at the brackets this time but they are still not to their liking.



This Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) also passed by, using the same trail as the hare and pine marten have previously.

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.
