Over the last year or so, we have been installing a range of wired cameras around the site, using i-Catcher Console to manage and record all the wildlife that frequents the site. More details of the cameras we are using and the set-up will appear here in the coming months. We are hoping to live stream some of our cameras in the future.
We are also using a selection of Bushnell trail cameras to monitor the wildlife on the site. These remote, battery operated cameras will record a still or video whenever they detect movement. In daylight, the video is full HD, with audio. These cameras will be used all over the site to build up a picture of both what wildlife visits and the movements of this wildlife.
WildlifeKate is the Bushnell UK Ambassador and has extensive experience using this kit. We hope to capture some exciting footage at the YewView, especially around the river edge, where we are hoping to capture clips of otters!

We are in the process of putting up a range of nest boxes, all with cameras. When the links are live, you will be able to follow the footage captured in each nest box.
We have an artificial badger sett on site that is occupied by around 4 badgers. We have cameras on both entrances to monitor the comings and goings of the occupants. We also have a feeding station that the badgers visit regularly. In November 2015, we built an artifical badger sett, with 2 chambers, each with an HD camera inside.
We have two small mammal feeding stations, one with a high res nest box camera inside and one with an HD Vivotek cam inside. We regularly have wood mice , voles and shrews visiting these feeding stations

We have an artifical otter holt on site. Initially, we monitored it with Bushnell Trail cams. We now also have a wired HD camera at the site on a floating platform, due to sudden fluctuations in the river levels.
