12 Days of Christmas – 2022

Day 8: A day in the life of the undergrowth

This is from a couple of years ago, but I still remember reviewing the footage from the SD card. 🙂

Early in the day we see a little water rail.

Later in the evening the secretive pine marten comes by, makes a deposit and exits stage left.

An hour or so later, a fox happens by to read the news.

It was our first glimpse of the water rail, so there was great excitement! Fantastic stuff!

We couldn’t believe it when we then saw the pine marten and just not passing through, but showing some interesting behaviour too!

The fox appearing and sussing out the scene of the pine marten crime was just the icing on the cake.

That minute of footage from that one day alone easily justified all the effort associated with trying to make the Purecamping space one that is diverse and wild. 🙂
