    So who’s got a trail camera then and what have you captured?
     
  2. I use one and get short 5 sec videos of the foxes we feed, plus badgers, muntjac and roe deer, hoped we'd get some hedgehogs but none, presumably the badgers eat them all locally.

    Brilliant. I’m all cats and foxes so far. And occasionally Mrs Moose as she gnaws on a few saplings.

    What’s going on with these bloody mosquitoes at the minute? Bold as brass, getting all up my face. Anyone else noticed it’s particularly bad this year? I’m covered in bites.

    The quinine in gin & tonic is meant to repel them. Thash my exsqush anyway.

    Not many mosquitoes in our house - I’m assuming the hoards of mutant gangly spiders that are invading it at the moment are keeping them at bay.

    I've got a security camera covering part of the garden and regularly see foxes, badgers, muntjac deer and strange cats.

    They’re the worst, got plenty in our house but apparently they’re too lazy to do anything about the mozzies.

    Got woken up the middle of the night a few weeks ago by a loud squeaking coming from the garden. Watched from the bedroom window as a fox played with the squeaky dog toys strewn all over the lawn. Cute as hell, until the morning when I realised it had made off with about £50 worth of dog toys including a Kong treat dispenser and a big rubber toothbrush thing you put dog toothpaste inside. I’ve trained our dog now to go out and gather all of her toys up off the lawn before bed, which is an adorable thing to watch.
