I wasnt serious - ask my girls i didnt taser them (there were times when a cattle prod might have been useful though. :rofl:

According to the Trossachs national park site they are trying to create a grey squirel free buffer zone up there.Its a difficult dilemma i like the greys too -and its not as though theyre deliberately murdering the reds - but as increasingly wildlife habitat is vanishing everything is under pressure - i read a piece on FB last night about five mammals likely to become extinct -i worry about peoples comprehension levels when it came to the comments though.

You can keep your Greys down South  :rofl:

Glad you liked Rambo Emz lol  Just been out Bat spotting but its shocking tonight with Midges attacking ya.......over last few nights I have been watching the Barn Owls hunting around 15ft from my armchair 8-) they then fly down to the woodland and then back up here again much more entertaining than TV. I find its the nights when ya realise how quiet the house is so i stick some rock music on lol Rory's favourite is Gary Moore for some reason he sits staring at the stereo when he's on and when it finishes he lays down again  strange little fella?

That's beautiful! Love it!
I had a new camera for my birthday and I managed to get a lovely photo of one of the foxes,  I'll have to add it later (just need to adjust the size first) xx

Cheers Emz and look forward to seeing your Fox photo, last night was a good Bat night with loads flying pretty close to the house but way too fast to get a photo, I might try setting my camcorder on constant record with nightvision on and leave to film.....if i get them fly close then i might be able to freeze images as stills. I got a really good old photography book on Amazon about watching and photographing wildlife at night and although its about film cameras they actual tips on making camera traps will adapt for digital use. There is a nice idea for a pressure plate you set up near some bait for Badgers and when they step on it it fires off a few shots so will definitely be making one of those. I have a few Trail cameras with work in the dark and detect movement and body heat but they are so sensitive they keep triggering when any grass moves grrrr.
Photography and just wildlife watching does you good and even if its just for 30mins just the break from upsetting thoughts will help you. Another thing about photography is it makes you want to eave the house to take pictures and you don't need expensive fancy cameras as lots of people have a camera on their phones which take lovely shots ok you won't be able to get far off shots of Eagles but even with gert big lenses they don't guarantee you will get a decent picture (I take loads but only a few are keepers)
Have fun.
