Self Analysis For Self Reliance – Know Thyself and Be Free

Back out in the bush after a long hiatus. In this video we look at the need to analyse what’s good and bad about our lives so that we can focus on what is truly important.

Soul Food – Stalking Red Deer In Snow

A short escape from city life and pandemic lockdowns. In this video I take you tracking animals with me in the deep snow. Along with a red fox hunting for rodents, I stalk a pair of red deer hinds as they try to rummage for food in the freezing conditions of the Carpathian Mountains. There’sContinue reading “Soul Food – Stalking Red Deer In Snow”

Leshy – Found Footage Creepy Forest Slavonic Mythology Horror Movie (Ver.2, edited!)

Bizarrely, it’s in the same location that we had a tree come crashing down in front ofContinue reading “Creepy Forest Ghost Spot Creature”

White-backed Woodpecker?

Whenever I’m alone in the bush, there are several species of birds and animals which always keep me company – the Raven and Lesser Spotted Eagle fly above the trees making their calls (sometimes the eagle flies through the forest and its wing beats send whooshing sounds through the leaves), woodpeckers knock on trees, JaysContinue reading “White-backed Woodpecker?”

Wild Cat and Fox size comparison

A couple of nights back I caught this pair of predators on the trail cam (Redleaf 1000) quite some distance from the house on the forest edge. As can be seen by the vertical white streak in both images, part of the long grass I’d camouflaged the trail cam with got blown down over theContinue reading “Wild Cat and Fox size comparison”
