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

An Historical Brain Teaser for all you big cat buffs.......

This is an image taken a good while back by Mark Fraser on one of his ancient Trail Master cams........(ah those were the days, 36 exposure 35mm film, never knowing what you had got till you got the film back from the developers. Usually costing £6.99 only to find you've got 36 pictures of a waving tree or bush)

Can anyone tell me the backgound behind this image. Clue - it relates to a very famous incident


  1. wasn't this the guy who had apparently gone into his caravan to get some spare parts for something and there was a large black cat inside? he had hair samples come back as being leopard type cat although in the picture the cat appears to be very long haired. i believe there was some form of armed response to this but cant remember how soon after.

  2. Quite a few days after the cat had left the armed response arrived :)

    1. Did you read the article about the boy that caught the catfish in Kent I beleive returned it to the river after landing it and was then told it was illegal to put catfish in the river. This would be exactley the same response to a big cat capture.

  3. Isn,t there a video of this caper on youtube?

  4. I remember this from a short documentary I've seen on youtube from some time back. It happened at an old couples house and a bunch of armed mercernary types turned up onlto find the cat gone. It was one of the best stories I've seen regarding UK Big Cats.

    I really want to believe in everything, even if its to stop my wife from laughing at me every time i'm researching the subject. I hate that.

  5. This is great! Nice sharing. It’s really a cool and helpful piece of information.
