Another batch of camera traps retrieved from the forest, and another new species to add to our list! This times it was the European pine marten (Martes martes) that came to check out my cameras… twice!! There was also a badger, some foxes and lots of roe deer (you know, the usual suspects 😉

Ok, and just so you can have a bit of fun at my expanse, I went to change two cameras today, and let’s say the weather was not in my favor… It started raining as soon as I got to the forest, and I had to go deep in the forest for these cameras.. it took me over 4 hours to get back to the bison enclosure, during which time I pretty much soaked in all the water that was around me… I ran out of t-shirts, my pants were soaking wet, and I was swimming more than I was walking… Of course all this made for an awesome picture xD

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m trying to release my shoes from under the EU’s Water Directive.
