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

Fox trying out the dinner laid on by the BCIB

Tim Jenkins in Warwickshire discovered a great sequence of photo's of a fox tucking into a rabbit when he checked his and Martin Cotterills' cameras on Monday. There were also a few dogs, a robin posing right in front of the cam and a very curious Homo sapiens!

These cams are in a location which has had previous big cat sightings and they are regularly baited with rabbits but unfortunately this particular rabbit was now quite ripe! The fox didn't seem to mind in the slightest though.

It does demonstrate how effective the cams are should we ever get a visit from a big cat though.

And of course our interested forestry worker. Smile Please !

  1. Noticed you comment about cameras being stolen
    just wondering about the tool in this guys hand.
    Maybe he still couldnt get this camera off or was disturbed.
