I had asked the local gamekeepers, all of whom denied seeing anything nearby, and I had kept my eyes open but never saw anything even close.

The second was that a gamekeeper told my dad that he had seen a dead badger on the main road, about 1.5 miles away. And then, while my trail camera was in a wood looking for pine marten, I got this blurred still:
I left it there for a week. It filmed deer - which I expected - then it filmed another four legged cloven-hoofed mammal I didn't expect to see at all !
