Deer in VelvetI love it when our stealth cam picks up activity like this. This is a group of our Roe deer with fuzzy antlers. That velvet helps provide nutrition and growth to their antlers.

NewArrivalsA while ago we set up stealth cameras in our woods so we could find out who lived here apart from ourselves. The results have been surprising. Just have a look at the footage of this family of wild boar, and watch one of the youngsters as he chases a pheasant. Luckily he was too slow. Perhaps that's due to all the maize he's been eating!
