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

Red Fox with a Rabbit just caught.

Using the near full moon to it's advantage, this fox has nabbed itself a rabbit. After I had checked the cam and left the wood, I then waited along a fenceline. A fox could could be seen stalking rabbits, possibly the same fox. The rabbit seems to be adult size and when the picture was taken it must of been so close to the cam to of brushed against it hence the over-exposure of the shot. I'm pretty sure the big cat that was in the area has moved on but these sort of snapshots of life at night make leaving the cam in situ (until a better place comes along), very worthwhile......
