Description

A collection of 9 female and males. I perhaps should say a flock rather than collection, but blackbirds aren't really that social, more like 5 pairs operating independently.

Description

Dawn chorus, well the sun had already risen so this must be a post-dawn chorus.

I was actually trying to record the starlings (which nest in the roof of the scout hall here), but there are starlings, thrushes, blackbirds, tui, and a saddleback in there. And probably others.

Description

Climbs down off an old boot and heads off in one direction, then a minute later reappears climbing off the boot again and heads off in another direction.

In earlier observations I thought it was just prowling for food, bit it appears to be a male toting gifts, on the prowl for a female.

Description

Not much hope of identifying it, except it does seem to be quite large, and distinctive rippling locomotion. (although the photo is probably misleading regarding size, and I have no scale to go by)

The jumps in the animation are where the camera stopped recording. This is actually from 3 sequences, where recording was re-triggered, joined together.

(please ignore the spider photo bombing)

Description

Although mice are not native and do predate native species, I am not actually targeting them with traps - the trap will only be set off by larger pests such as rats, stoats or hedgehogs. But this observation shows a problem : the mice enter the trap and eat the bait - rendering the trap uninteresting to the target species.

Slowed down by a factor of 3, this shows a mouse that takes a running jump at a concrete step, hits it mid way up, but clings on and climbs up.

Description

I think there is just one large spider living near my back door. Previous observation at /observations/27370651.

I actually spotted this guy under some leaves during the day, went and got my camera and was back within 30 seconds but it had gone. Cleaned up all the leaves, thought I might have carried it away with the leaves.

But it seems to still be residing somewhere nearby. Spotted it on infra-red about 20 past midnight, then again quarter past 5, then the first animation here is at 5:30am, then the second animation where it is moving a lot slower 10 minutes later.
