Oscar Dewhurst – Raccoon


Oscar writes: while I was in Canada, I had a day to myself in Vancouver, so jumped on a bus and headed to Stanley Park in the hope of finding some wildlife to photograph. The Raccoons there are very confiding, presumable because they are fed by the visitors there, so I spent a couple of hours photographing them in the undergrowth just by the side of the path.

  1. About twenty five years ago, a colleague and I were lamping for foxes on some lambing fields.
    The farmer asked us to shine the light under his raised hen shed, pointing out the numerous bones lying there. He said that he often observed an animal "wi a black an white face, like a badger but smaller".
    Reports ceased after a while, and we never managed to see it on our visits.
    It just shows, you never know what's about, especially when you have a wildlife park about five miles away.
