Fot the second year running, we have found a hedghog with its head ripped off.
It was even in the same place, under the oak. We do not have badgers.
I spent a weeks marine biology field trip on the isle of mull. We were hunting otters(with cameras). It was a privilege to watch them hunting for fish in the sea. On the last day, we were told they appear every night outside the whisky distillery. You just have to know where to look.
I can't choose my favourite mammal moment. Was it the bottlenosed dolphin that played around us, as we dived off of St Ives, or the minute where the dozen fox cubs and two mothers erupted on to the back lawn playing, and then vanished back into the wood just as fast.?
