Beltane (update)

I write from the middle of a storm to bring you a bonus blog post this week. Dan has edited and posted the trail camera video for this week, as well as the associated photos.

This week we can see loads of rabbits and funny squirrels, along with blackbirds, tits and pheasants. There is detailed video of the deer looking about, munching on the vegetation and digging through the soil. At one point all three of them were in shot. The stag has some pretty grody antler velvet right now too.

But the highlight for me was the tawny owl which appeared towards the end. I wonder if this is the same owl that sometimes sits in the trees near my bedroom window and makes that huuu call they make.
