  1. That is brilliant Mike, love the new site and if I ever get down to the marsh must remember to tuck my trousers into my boots.

    • Thanks Dave. It is only necessary to tuck your trousers into your boots if you visit after dark. Wandering the marsh after dark is not advisable, though, it is likely to suck you up. 😉

  2. Haha! Great fun Mike. Now do the same with badgers, if you are up for a challenge.

    • I don’t do competitions. I don’t accept awards. I Dont bet and don’t do challenges either, John. You will have a hard time finding a more boring and unexciting person than me.

      • This doesn’t sound like the mike I know! Do I detect a touch of fear, or a lack in confidence in your ability to see succeed Mike

      • I do have HD vids in the pipeline, John. I might put one or two on this blog in due course, and badgers are likely to feature in at least one of them, but the timescale is longer than a month.

  3. Better still, I challenge you to camera trap voles within a month.

    • The last thing I want to do is give the impression that the marsh is overrun with rats. In fact, the reverse is most likely true.

      Rats are essential prey for many of the marsh animals, such as mink, fox, stoats, weasels and polecat. Domestic cats appear regularly in front of my camera traps, and I have seen them carrying rats in their mouth on numerous occasions.

      I rarely see rats on the marsh in daylight, but their images from my camera traps and paw prints on muddy banks show that they are there.

  4. I had a vision of hordes of rats rampaging through my garden.
