Nocturnal Goings-on [May. 29th, 2014|08:31 am]
Tony Grist
For three nights in a row now we've had something come and knock the hanging bird feeder to the ground. My mother says, "squirrels", but if it was we'd surely see them trying to get at the feeder during the day- and we don't. My guess is an owl.

At night? More likely rats. Or an owl catching rats. Or an owl catching Romanians.

Rats: I hadn't thought of that.

Though I did consider foxes....

Oo, sounds like an ideal situation for a camera trap. Just mount it somewhere it'd have a good view of the area, and when it senses sufficient infrared activity, it'll turn on its own IR LEDs for illumination and take occasional photos. Your own noctural Springwatch!

(Not that that's an area I've researched much, as the back yard here's a dead end, so isn't a route for any mammals. We've had a red kite perch repeatedly in the tree in previous years, though not this year. All models will record to SD Cards, and I believe some of the more expensive ones will also connect over WiFi)

Yes, a good idea...

I'm thinking it's most likely a living scarecrow.

You know what? I rather hope not.
