Wildlife in Your Garden – there is more than you think!


Wildlife can be right under your nose and you don’t even see it. All you need to do is spend a little more time looking for nature and less time watching the television. I know this isn’t as easy as it sounds but it can be very rewarding.
A good way to start is listen to music on low volume get a brew and look out the window for an hour.

Yes, yes it takes patience. If you haven’t got the patience then you may want to invest in a wildlife camera. You can set them to record whenever they detect any movement. We set ours up in our back garden pointing at the house. We left it out there for a week and then sifted through the events it had captured.


The footage we captured has been amazing and at times very funny. The clip above is our youngest cat BB nearly catching an early dinner. I am more than made up and I’m glad we purchased the camera. The adverts on this page is the actual camera we purchased from Amazon. I would definitely give it 10 out of 10!

The next clip is a Jay which I have only ever seen three times in my life. I can’t believe that we managed to capture one on camera.


The next clip is a Grey Squirrel. It seemed to be gathering bedding for its new abode. Sadly we do not have any red squirrels in Wigan. Well not that I am aware of anyway 🙂



The last clip is a fox which I was really surprised to see in a Wigan suburban back garden. I have never seen one of these in the flesh hopefully one day I will have the pleasure of doing so.


I have to say big well done to MadCat for capturing the images and sorting out through all of the recordings 🙂

So what are you waiting for? Click on the Amazon advert and treat yourself to a new gadget. Please let us know what you managed to catch on camera.
