Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

The Big Cats in Britain organisation, (BCIB), predominately searches for evidence of native and non native feline species living in the British Countryside. Part of our research includes the use of wildlife trigger cameras, also known as stealth cams or trail cams . These operate using infra-red technology to take pictures of any animal that passes the camera.

Our members have dozens of these cameras in various locations around the British Isles, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

This blog is dedicated to showing the general public, the animals we have captured on camera. These images are small snapshots of the diversity of animal life that can be found in our countryside.

We hope you enjoy them.......................

Images from the Stroud Valleys, Gloucestershire. taken in September 2009.

At the weekend I installed a remote camera at a farm in the Stroud Valleys.

It is a location where we were going to have the web cam but there was no electricity supply and it was too far between the camera and the receiving computer.

After two days of the camera being up there were 12 wildlife pics, including the attached, which includes two muntjac having a scrap.

I will switch the photo options to high res from now on.

The camera is pointing to a well used deer and badger trail and a wet spring-fed area. Beyond the fence/
hedge at the back of the pics is a huge and deep wooded valley. The farmer will bait this spot sometimes, esp in cold weather.

Camera used was a Moultrie


Will keep you posted.
