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

BCIB Press Releases


Big Cats In Britain research group release Wildlife images captured from their dozens of cameras from the UK.
Big Cats in Britain (BCIB) are the largest organisation of its type in the world, with members from all over the UK. Over the last few weeks there has been an increased effort to make use of Wildlife trigger cameras, (also known as Trail Cams, or Stealth Cams), in order to get that elusive picture of a big cat in the British Countryside. At present we have a total of 28 cameras (and rising), in various locations around the UK.
BCIB Blog editor and researcher, Shaun Stevens, said: These cameras are probably the only way we will finally solve the big cat phenomena, with a little luck and patience, that elusive big cat picture is just around the corner. Until that time however, we can enjoy the natural images of the other residents of the British animal kingdom that our cameras capture; images of animals in their natural surroundings, rarely seen by the public.

As well as our main website at www.bigcatsinbritain.org, and our main sightings blog at http://britishbigcats.blogspot.com we have created a brand new blog http://bigcatsinbritaintriggercamerablog.blogspot.com to show the general public, images of the many types of animals we have captured to date. This blog will be updated with new images on a weekly basis as our researchers upload the images captured on their cameras. We have captured images of Fallow, Roe and Muntjac deer, foxes, badgers, and one of our cameras has captured the image of a large unknown feline in Argyllshire Scotland. This is on the blog at http://bigcatsinbritaintriggercamerablog.blogspot.com/2010/06/is-this-evidence-of-big-cat.html

BCIB founder Mark Fraser said: “we are looking for more safe locations to place the cameras on a fulltime basis. It is only by having these remote ‘eyes’ in the countryside that will give us a real chance to catch on camera what witnesses have been reporting for decades. It is a great aid in helping us get to the bottom of the Big Cat Mystery.”
This is the start of a major concerted effort to get as many of these cameras out into the field in known Big Cat hotspots.

Areas covered so far are.
Kent, Cambridge shire, Buckinghamshire, Warwickshire, Merseyside, Manchester, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Sussex, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire.
Fife, Ayrshire, Clackmannanshire., Argyllshire

Big Cats in Britain.
We are an investigative group made up of a network of researchers across the country. We gather evidence and information with the aim of discovering exactly what species of big cats are roaming the British countryside and how they came to be here. For our purpose the term 'big cats' denotes any feline not indigenous to the British Isles or any unknown indigenous big cat. We offer - and are continuing to expand - the biggest online archive of information on British big cats.
