I've been slightly worried about the apparent absence of our visiting Badgers.
Due to overnight rain I didn't set up my camera for a couple of weeks and when I did finally have a chance to do so it only recorded foxes.
Last night I decided to change the switch off time from 0315 to 0400 to see if that would help.
As is often the way of these things a Badger put in a welcome appearance well before midnight but a Muntjac dropped in as well at 0326.
They have paid occasional visits in the past but I was pleased to see this image this morning.

Have you ever heard one bark?

Yes, quite often. In the dead of night you can hear them up in the woods.
It's a fairly high pitched yap which carries for some distance. Opinion seems to be divided as to why they do it.
One school of thought says they do it for no apparent reason but it is sometimes suggested they are seeking a mate.

Incidentally, the Muntjac pictured is quite big for the species and I'd say that it was about the height of a large Airedale Terrier.
Very often they are fairly unremarkable and don't draw attention to themselves.

I learned something new today. https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildl...s/muntjac-deer

I was going to tell you I was pretty sure that wasn't a badger.

According to one site I looked at earlier, there's about 40,000 in the UK which surprised me.
They're a timid creature so I've never quite understood why they draw so much attention to themselves by their lengthy barking sessions.
Mind you, the place isn't exactly alive with timber wolves so perhaps they do it out of force of habit.

I read wolves howl to let the world know where they are. If you're a friend I'm here, if you're a foe stay away from here. Maybe the deer do something like that.

Compare the ASPCA vs the SPCA, two completely different critters.
ASPCA ~ big bucks and guilt trips. SPCA ~ caring for animals.

The RSPCA has done sterling work since 1824 but in recent years seems to have lost its way.
It was warned by the Charity Commission to put its house in order after an over generous payment to its departing acting Chief Executive.
The Society has had eight Chief Executives in eleven years, so make of that what you will.

I can pick up the TV guide and the chances are that there will be a series about the RSPCA in the schedules.
The lads and lasses who do the job at the sharp end are hard working and dedicated. They deserve better leadership.

For porkypines every day is a bad hair day.


When I hear the word porcupine, or see one, I think of Family Feud. The question was 'Fill in the blank, pork _____.' And the guy responded with "Cupine."
