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

Deer, black dogs, and well I'm just not sure!.

Paul Nicolaides in Buckinghamshire sent us these images from his files.

The first two pictures are easily identifiable, but the third has got us stumped. Can anyone identify what it is?

Well this one is definately a deer, but I'm a little unsure as to
what species. Possibly a Roe Deer.

When I first recieved this image by email, it was shown as a thumbnail, and for a split second, I thought Paul had hit the jackpot, but unfotunately it wasn't one our big black cats, but a big black dog. Oh well, we'll keep trying.

This final picture is, well your guess is as good as mine. Dog? Deer? You decide!

We'd be interested to hear peoples comments on this one.

  1. Its a monkey! Look at its arms out in front of it and it also looks like it is sticking its tongue out - cheeky!

  2. Pretty sure it's a dog bum! He looks like he's got his back to us and sniffing behind the tree/bush. Steph x
