Hoo Brook Brown Rat.
It was dark, mild, and wet on the marsh this morning, and just about showing a glimmer of dawn when I returned home for breakfast.
Of the two camera traps I am monitoring at the moment, only RatCam had captured action overnight. The camera’s IR lighting is all over the place on this video: a sign that the batteries need replacing, perhaps.
Maybe the lighting adds to the grimness of the subject; although, I think the brown rat is lovely.
Brown Ratty is in a good place: rarely do I see signs of this rodent’s predators on the mud bank outside his home.
