Oops! (Vole #2)

With new batteries, our Badgercam (the Ltl Acorn 5210A trail camera) was deployed again in the kitchen last night. The cat appears in early clips, languidly wandering to the cat flap, staring at it, then narcissistically grooming himself. After midnight he appears to retire to his electrically-heated cat basket for a long sleep.

Just after 4 am, a number of clips catch our new kitchen resident. This clip (be sure to watch the whole thing - patience!) is typical.

We have now deployed the vole-trap-refuge, baited with nut fragments and buttered bread. Perhaps tonight will be the night?
