Wildlife camerasTwo recently installed wildlife cameras located in the grounds of Langdon Hospital in Dawlish have already yielded exciting footage. Funded by the DPT Charity, the cameras are sited at an already existing patient hedgerow and orchard improvement project and can operate day and night.

Alex Watkins, Technical Instructor, who works with patients on the hedgerow and orchard project, said: "Patients who work on the project have shown a keen interest in the wildlife cameras. We have also had new interest from some not currently involved. The footage we have collected already is beyond what I thought we may get in just a couple of weeks, and shows the area is teeming with life. We are interested to see what we capture as we turn to spring. We also have a patient who is keen to edit and share the footage we have got."

Below is an assortment of the animals caught on the wildlife camera in little more than 14 days – badger, fox, deer, dormouse and some less common birds, including a Red Wing. Video footage is being taken and will be shared on the DPT YouTube channel soon.
