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

Badgers climbing trees in Sussex

Derek Bilston (BCIB Sussex) is also a member of The Sussex Big Cat Watch, a small group of investigators concentrating on researching the big cat sightings in their county. Charlie, one of their members has recently created a new blog detailing some of the research they are involved in. It is a very good read and can be found at http://bigcatdetective.blogspot.com/.

They too have a trigger camera and Charlie has kindly allowed us to reproduce those articles on his blog that show some of the resulting images from their camera. The camera they are using currently is a "Stealth Trail Camera GL M100"

We hope you enjoy them, and don't forget to check out their website and their blog.

These pictures of the badgers were picked up by our infrared camera following a successful 3 week trial. It is set up somewhere in Sussex nigh on permanently. Many thanks to the landowner concerned, for their help. I don't quite know what the one up the tree is doing. It could be looking for insects or maybe just being nosey. Whatever it is, I'm glad I didn't put the camera 2ft up that tree, given the power of their claws.
