Wasp Nests.

Mike Averill, Bill Foxall and myself busied ourselves, today, pollarding old, knarly, bent, twisted, and wood worm infested willow trees that have many holes, nooks, crannies, and splits in their trunks. I mentioned a couple of times my surprise at not having encountered wasp or hornet nests, only to find that I was sitting on top of one. All the tree rocking, banging and falling of many long branches, failed to worry the wasps; they continued flying in and out of the nest without giving us a second thought.

Sometimes a nest is full of non aggressive wasps, whilst another is  full of the very aggressive variety.

OtterCam recorded 60 minutes of video last night, featuring these animals.

If I had wanted to capture this much nighttime content of these beasts, I think it unlikely that I would be able to do it.

The South Marsh Fox at the Siphon.

I think that the red dog suspects he is being watched, but he doesn’t know from where or by what. Maybe he can’t figure out where the music is coming from.

Muntjac Buck in Hoobrook Pasture.

Even though this camera trap has an invisible black multi-LED flash unit, the animals know it’s there.
