Frank,

They must be using a new camera as the shot is very sharp, but all I can see is some pig's s***.

My question is how are they lighting the area ? I can see that there are 2 shadows on the ground from the large tree but will this amount of light disturb the pig

Bob

Hello Bob, oh yeah, You're right. I have only once seize them. And it was about 16.00-18.00 GMT. But it will shift to earlier time slowly. Because of beginning spring. I hope we'll publish some recordings of their presence there with time on the picture.... this would help catch them.

Pigs do not care about artificial light and they don't care about most weirdest things which are located hihger than meter of their eye level. So told me wild animal expert.

But lights are located as follows: if You'd look down at area from the top and the camera is on the 6 oclock then key light is around 10-11(where normally is background) and fill light is somewhere around 4 oclock. Key differs from fill only by it's reflector and its a bit closer. So key gives a bit more intensive spot and shaddows. Fill works as shaddow killer.

This technique of lighting is very often used by wild shootings.

About the bulbs we use there... i have to verify that information: what was exact model of those bulbs but can You imagine its 250W per piece. So we lighted up this scene with only 500W!!!

Yahoo - saw something eating there, I think it was a beaver, seemed to have a flat wide tail, must have been a beaver? Anyone confirm that at 20:17 GMT 3rd Feb.

I think it's in Estonia - follow the link in the first post of the thread.

I can't quite make out what the animal is there at the moment, but it doesn't look like a beaver.

Just had an idea, and checked my mammal book. I think it could be a raccoon-dog. It was introduced to the European part of the old USSR from further east, and has spread to Finland, Poland and a lot of eastern Europe, and even into parts of France via Germany.

yep...I reckon Annie's right...Raccoon Dog ...porcupine is more southerly in Europe.... I tried whistling thinking it might move nearer attracted by the noise but that didnt work.....

might be a good record, I'm sure our resident expert will advise in due course

Donn't know about counting it as a lifer, more like a TV tick - if you're into that sort of thing. But there is something satisfying about seeing it and identifying it for yourself, even if it isn't in the flesh. A bit like seeing my first kentish plover on a Welsh wildlife program - I couldn't understand the commentary, so it was definitely my identification.
