Too Many Rats on the Marsh
The north marsh is in need of a hungry fox family.
When my camera traps are collecting too many videos of a particular animal, this alerts me to a possible out of balance situation, and I am watching too many rat video clips at the moment: 59 minutes last night and more on previous nights.
This rat family home is a hole into the side of a badger’s sett entrance. Something has been into the sett and cleared out an old badger skull and a few other bones. I’m trying, so far without success, to find the north marsh vixen’s birthing den; I know she is pregnant.
