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

Muntjac Portraits

We may still be waiting for a clear image of a big cat, but some members are getting plenty of shots of another alien species, the Muntjac deer.

Originally from China, the first muntjac escapees came from Woburn Park in the mid 1920's. The current estmates indicate that the UK population is around 150,000, and increasing at around 8%-10% per year. It is believed that within a few decades they will be the most numerous species of deer in the UK, if left unchecked

These images have been captured by Martin Cotterill in Warwickshire on his Scoutguard cam.
