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.......................

Is this evidence of a big cat?

This picture was taken from an undisclosed location in the west of Scotland. It is part of an ongoing investigation into a area where, over a number of years, there have been numerous sightings of large cats, and the occasional livestock attack. This cat is estimated to be almost 3 foot in body length. Measurements of the tree branch and comparison photographs taken on site confirm this size.

Image taken using a Moultrie Game Spy D40 Camera. Image is strictly copyrighted to the BCIB and not to be reproduced in any form elsewhere without permission.

  1. It certainly is one of the best pictures that I have seen. Also considering the recent sightings in the area and the sheep depradations, along with measurements taken at the scene; I believe it to be a very good picture of an alien feline in Scotland.

    Although in my view some kind of measuring sticks, marker poles are needed. I await with hope for more pictures from the area. Keep up the good work!

  2. This reminds me a lot of the cougars that I tracked in the mountain deserts of Oregon especially the tail.I think its probably more related to the clouded and snow leopard the mountain lion. Very close to the big cats, but not quiet there. I'm curious what you guys think. Keep placing trail cameras. A clearer picture will come soon!
