New wildlife camera

Through a local government grant (thank you WDC Cllr Matecki!) we have a second trail camera. Our existing one has been positioned by the pond for so long that it’s created a useful ongoing record of wildlife activity, and we’ve decided to leave it there for that purpose.

The second camera will enable us to monitor wildlife in other parts of the wood. In the grant application, we said that it could also allow us to get some idea of visitor numbers when the camera is positioned near a path. Have no fear: this isn’t intended to monitor individuals; it would be a purely number counting exercise and any imagery of people will be deleted afterwards.

It’s often been speculated that some of the wildlife seen during the night spends the day in neighbouring Wiggerland Wood. The current position on the SE path may help to answer this.
