The video cuts from the trail cameras before the thaw start as usual lately – a hare comes into camera view and examines the surroundings. Suddenly it stops and rushes back along the path that it came by. Something is different and causes anxiety. The reason apparently were the foxes, more mobile than earlier, that have made forest life livelier; several individuals passed the camera. A four-membered roe deer herd passed too. Two bucks and two does. Behind a tussock marked by foxes there was some grain on the ground. The smell of the grain was probably one reason that attracted foxes to mark it with their smell. In the deer flock the bucks were most interested in these smells. Some mouthfuls of grain were also grabbed but no more. Sprayed grain was evidently not quite the thing.
The trail camera installed on the path of the lynxes captured roe deer.
