Roe deer

Local Patch Reporter Sara Frost captures footage of a roe deer. 

Species: Roe deer

Location: Seil Island

Date: 23 February 2014 

I’ve been putting bird seed and fruit out in my garden to give a helping hand to whatever creatures are scampering about foraging for food.

Last week I set up wildlife cameras in my garden to see what wildlife (if any) was showing up when I wasn’t around.

I’m pleased to say it looks like the food is very much appreciated!

A scuttling in my loft also caught my attention last week, so this week I’ve had cameras running up there too.

I had my suspicions of what visitor I was likely to have, which proved to be correct.

BBC Wildlife wanted to find a new way to share some of our readers’ natural-history diaries with other wildlife enthusiasts, and Local Patch Reporters was born. 

Our 20 Local Patch Reporters for 2014 are aged from 10 to 64 and live from Dorset in the south to Shetland in the north.

Throughout this year they will be exploring and reporting on nature in their neighbourhood via online blogs.

Sara Frost is a Local Patch Reporter from the west coast of Scotland. 

Sara’s nature patch: Seil Island

“I enjoy nature writing and wildlife film-making. I’m currently creating and presenting a 15-minute film called Wild Islands, which is about the variety of wildlife in the Inner Hebrides,” she says.

Sara’s wildlife aims for 2014: Carry out monthly cetacean surveys on board the King Seaways in the North Sea during the summer and set up a camera-trap in my garden to try and record pine martens.
