Red foxes are not as solitary as many people think and often live in a family group containing a dominant breeding pair and their cubs, and, if there is enough food in the territory, several further adults (often grown up cubs from previous years)

Fingers crossed! There are lots of great pine marten conservation efforts going on so hopefully there will be more opportunities in the future!

Did you recognise the pine marten? They were pushed to the edge of extinction in the UK but thanks to conservation efforts are recovering. Most abundant in Scotland, look out for more photos like this from on their MammalWeb project

This photo was captured almost exactly a year ago, and while some of you may recognise this animal, to others it might be less familiar. SO, lets talk about it in this weeks ! what species is this? Have you seen one before? (In real life or on camera trap!)

Yes it's strange to think, seeing as they are so common now! Some may think of them as a pest and population control is necessary due to lack of natural predators left in the UK

Roe deer, now the most common deer in the UK, were driven to extinction in England and Wales in the 1700s due to hunting and habitat loss. Some remained in Scotland, and this recovering population was supplemented by reintroductions in the 1800s

I'm afraid those are distant lights pretending to be eye shine I think! But there is a rabbit running off to the right! 🐇

No it wasn't a ghost it was a cheeky little rabbit hopping across! The movement has made it a little blurry and its about to head out the right of the frame, but you can just make out some ears poking up, and a little cotton tail & large hind leg at the other end

We can see on area clearly lit up by the flash of this camera trap, but what set it off, was it a ghost?? 😮👻 Let us know if you can see anything in this weeks and visit our page at 5pm tomorrow for an answer!

Red foxes are smaller than many people think, & are a similar size to a large house cat! Adult females weigh only around 5-6kg, with males weighing just slightly more, at around 6-7kg (And we may be biased but we also think they are very cute!)
