Wildlife Cameras


Hare pops into view

We use wildlife cameras a lot for seeing what goes on around the reserve. It’s amazing what appears, particularly mammals when we are not looking.


This Grey Squirrel quickly sat on watch protecting his good food supply of peanuts


Any vantage point would do.


This pair of Jays also have a taste for peanuts.


The Grey Squirrel was keen to see them off.


A Red Squirrel also was coming into feed.


The Squirrels couldn’t stop all animals with a taste for peanuts!


The camera was moved to the shoreline. The badgers are showing interest in otter spraints near the shore


So to are the Otter mum and her cub. These cameras are giving us a good idea of where the otter territories are. This is one of two families along the east shore of Loch Leven.


On my way back from setting up the cameras I spotted an out-of-place brown blob in the field.


On closer inspection, I was not surprised it was a Hare.


I spent a while trying to get a decent shot of the Hare in the field only to find another one closer to the road. This one sat looking at me for a while but……


…eventually got bored and ran off showing off its lovely black centre to its tail.
