One of our Green Teams noticed a track in the Wild Learning Area, that went under the fence. We could clearly see that an animal of some kind was regularly going under this fence, into our school field. What animal could it be? We had suggestions of hedgehogs, cats, a deer and even a wolf!

There was only one way to find out for sure and that was to set the Bushnell trail camera. This camera would remotely monitor the area and make a video every time an animal came past. The boys set the camera up, facing the hole under the fence…

The following week, we were keen to get the SD card out and to see what had been recorded. We had over 300 clips! We looked through them on the PC and were delighted to find out that foxes regular travel under this fence. A couple of the clips did, indeed, look like we had a wolf visiting! This fox is big, very bushy and looks very well fed!

We also captured clips of two different cats using this path.

We chose our favourite clips and combined them into one clip, which you can see here.
