Finally got around to sorting through my woodland wildlife clips this weekend to make a few videos.
Nothing too exciting, but thought you might appreciate them on here...

There's nothing wrong with those vids that chopping down 50 trees wouldn't solve, Zathras..... They're fine within the limits of the cameras. OK, they'd maybe benefit from extra lighting and clearer views but that's not always practical and certainly , within a wood like that, there's little chance to get anything better - they might benefit from being a little closer to the sett but you then lose overall view and context. I don't have half of the issues that you have there and it's taken 6 months to get the vids to the state they are because of the cam limitations in both lighting and very small field of view - lighting has been driving me nuts - I have two identical cams and both cams are on the same settings - lighting for one is probably as good as I'll get it but the other is just way too bright no matter what I do.......

Here's 3 recent short clips: one of a mouse punch up, one of a very red grey squirrel and one is the first daytime badger vid of the year followed by the cubs playing.

Positioning the camera is tricky, you cannot move a tree closer to the subject.
We're further limited by ones suitable for disguising, and clearing the view also would make it more visible so a balance of risk and reward has to be achieved.

There is a forth video labelled The Poachers but I didn't post a link here for obvious reasons (not to mention it didn't really qualify as wildlife either) ;)
