Keeping your eyes and ears open, using all your senses, is what all people with an interest in wildlife do all the time. Making observations, submitting records and so on.
And ocassionally there is a helping hand. Here a security camera caught the eyes of a young deer taking a stroll up a driveway. In this case, it’s not possible to identify the species but it’s always worth checking your camera footage for things other than burglars! And many purpose-built wildlife trail cameras are becoming less expensive.
It’s also interesting to see so many moths on the wing. May have to get that moth trap out again tonight.
