Does that camera do video too? Just don't try to direct them, they resent that and can be hazardous to your health.

Yes, it also does video and time lapse. I'll probably have a go at video in a few days time when I hope to have a better understanding of using it for stills.

After I posted the previous two images I placed the camera in the front garden with a switch off time of 0330.
There is a distinct track on the lawn which could only have been made by a Badger so I placed the camera as best I could in relation to that track.
Results aren't brilliant, I have to say, but they give me something to work on.

Badgers are very territorial and boundaries are often marked by linear features such as hedges, field edges, ditches etc. and I think we might straddle two territories.
Those visiting the back garden arrive from the direction of the stream at the bottom of the garden and return on the same path. I'm pretty sure that they never venture out to the front.
The Badger in the above image is a hefty looking chap and I don't believe him to be one of the back garden regulars.

There isn't exactly a shortage of foxes around here so I'm not surprised that this fellow turned up.

I'll have another try tonight and experiment with the placing of the camera in the hope of better results.
With luck the snow should have thawed by then as well.
I don't know if that affects infra red photography in any way but given the temperature difference between surface and subject I'd be surprised if it didn't.

Incidentally, the crude cropping is due to neighbour privacy concerns. I thought it might be best if I included them out.

that's really cool! I don't think I've ever seen a badger in person in the wild.

Great job, Carruthers! You certainly have quite a menagerie in your garden. I'd be quite nervous having such critters roaming around my yard - the raccoons and 'possums I see around here got nothin' on a badger!

Badgers will, as a rule, avoid confrontation. Once I went out into the back garden and disturbed one who disappeared at a rate of knots.
However, when cornered they'll stand their ground fiercely and are well worth avoiding in those circumstances.
They are now protected by law but badger baiting was once a legal savagery. It probably still goes on in out of the way places.

I've just brought the camera in and downloaded the photos.
It's a bit of a mixed bunch although there are several images of two badgers feeding on the peanuts I left out.
This is about the best of the whole lot although it is rather spoiled by the fact that I was shining a torch from indoors at the time.

I have had great fun with a couple of "Wildview" cameras over the past several years here in Northern California.
They are like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, never knowing what will show up.
Aside from my own housecats and bovines I have pictures of foxes, raccoons, possums, skunks, jackrabbits, deer, coyotes, neighbors' goats, cats and dogs, vultures, one hawk and a muskrat.
Possibilities for someday are ring-tailed cat, porcupine, elk and otter.
The nearest badger sett is in the next county south.
Last night, in spite of some serious left-overs chumming, I only got my cat Ok at 03:18.

I found one of many Bruce's "Badger, mushroom" video":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NL6CDFn2i3I

I never saw it before and doubt I will again.

Sorry to repeat, or really supplement, fargon's post, but those video links don't work on Internet Explorer and I didn't open Google Chrome this morning.
