I'm just lucky that I'm in an area where there are Pine Marten. When I first moved here it wasn't something that I expected to have so it's a real bonus.

I work as a wildlife biologist in Montana and have the luxury of using quite a few automatic upload trail cameras (BuckEyes) that upload to a free public website. I do all of the labeling so you can sort through the pictures by camera or by species.

There are thousands of photos and video clips on the site so feel free to browse and play as you wish. If you find some favorites, you can create a free account and save them to your own favorites page to do with as you please.

CondonWildlifeCams

Enjoy!! And feel free to message me with any questions.

Tracy :-)

Still nothing to rival Fiona's Pine Marten, but I checked my camera trap today and found that a grand total of two animals had triggered it in the past two and a half weeks. Here they are.

I've now moved it to another location.

At least the first one did Smile for the camera.

It's not a competition .

Good luck with the new location.

You can't go wrong at 30 pounds! The picture quality looks excellent too!

If anyone has a camera stick it out at a badger sett now if you can... cubs are going crazy here. Loads of play fighting, skullduggery and general naughty cuteness! Unfortunately none of this is on my camera but our videos should be on t'internet in the next few weeks.

Get the cubs when they're little, cute and bouncy.

More new species:
a flock of small rubber ducks
and another tantalising glimpse of either a rat or a water vole - my latest mission.

I'm getting a bit bored of deer now. After nearly a month at a new location, Roe Deer were the only things I recorded (apart from two people with a dog). Interesting to see how much the bracken grew during the month, and interesting to see that the camera moved at some point.

I've now followed Turkish Van's example and put the camera next to the river below the forest. I've pointed it at a rock that had some otter spraint on it.

We see them all the time in the village but first time we have realised they were in the garden.

Up close and personal with a heron
And a lovely badger who waddled along with her tail sticking up, quite unaware my camera was watching her.
