Late night visit from a Fox
The mysterious Wild Boar?

This blog entry is almost certainly going to be the first of many that features news about the flora, fauna and wildlife on the farm. We take a lot of pride in the way we manage the farm and the habitat we have created over the years, which in turn encourages the wildlife and its lovely to be able to share that environment with visitors who come to stay on the farm. About a month ago we borrowed a remote 'Camera Trap' or 'Trail Camera' as some people call them, from a friend and ever since we have been trying to get a feel for the activity of the nocturnal animals on the farm.

Its not a great time of the year to be trying it out, because a lot of animals have hunkered down for the winter and who can blame them, its not been particularly nice lately. We have had some success though, as you can see from the photos, but we are hungry to do better! We have heard that there are some Wild Boar in the area and it would be fun to know if they ever come on a jaunt around the farm of a night. They are very shy, exceptionally cautious creatures and certainly you would never see one in daylight, so we are going to see if we can get a picture of them at night. So watch this space, will we be able to get a decent picture of the illusive Boar...?
