A new animal on the traps this time, a grey squirrel. 

The squirrel again in colour.

We got another fox who showed some interest in the camera.

He came close to it.

We also got a daytime shot of the fox showing his beautiful orange red coat.

A nice shot of the fox looking back.

This bottle gave the fox something to investigate.

The squirrel running across shot.

The bottle providing more interest

Under the bottle was a wasp nest and i think this fox found that out.

We also got these deer passing .

As we were leaving we had a quick look for the deer at dusk. We saw a herd of 5 and followed them. We lost them but we did hear lots of deer calling. Maybe a rut?
