Starting from number six there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

We had a couple more days of photographs emailed to us today, but we still need more to be able to continue with the Photo Page.

These are a few pictures from the back-streets of Oxford, I have lived in Oxford all my life and used to think the place was a tip, but now I have a bit of time on my hands I have found there are still some very nice bits left that haven’t been developed. Clive.

Going by last night and today’s entries on the Forum no one, even the regulars saw the Buck Roe Deer in the Valley last night. It was by far the best nighttime picture that we have ever had of Wildlife in the Valley. I was pleased to see a Deer as I have only seen a few in the past few months. No where near the amount that we saw earlier this year and last or since we allowed the Cattle into the Valley.

Over the past few days we have also seen quite a lot of Deer foot prints in the Valley, again the first for a good while. With a bit of luck they are starting to return. Now that we have managed to get the Vally Camera working properly we will be able to see the Deer and any other Wildlife a lot better. We are waiting for a couple of new infra-red lamps that are going to be donated by the camera manufacturer. They will we hope light up the far end of the Valley as it use to be, if not better.

The Valley Fields are over ten acres. The best way to light it is to cover all directions of the Valley with individual infra-red lamps, but unfortunately that would be mega money. Now that the days are getting shorter it is important to try to see more night time Wildlife.

We managed to get David to put up another small addition to the Squirrel obstacle course. My idea of putting a tunnel on the first pole was not as good as I expected it to be. By what I have seen some of the Squirrels don’t even bother going inside of it. They just scamper over the outside. It wouldn’t be easy as it has no grip. I havent had a lot of time to check it out, so I am not sure if it is spoiling the Squirrel activity. Let us know if you think it is. This is the last week that Vicky and her Family are with us. Unfortunately David is not coming down this week so I wont be able to get him to add anything this week. Somehow we will try to add something.
