Cool 'Bobcat Alley' Story in The Record

1-Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 3.51.46 PM
Environmental writer Jim O'Neill has a cool story on the front page of The Record today about Bobcat Alley -- a wildlife corridor that The Nature Conservancy and other groups are trying to create in the northwestern part of New Jersey.

As part of TNC, I have been out to the region several times and also photographed it from the air. It is an awesome place and definitely in need of saving.

The Record has some great bobcat shots and a video to go along with the story, here.

I thought I'd share (for the first time anywhere, I think) a trail cam shot of a bobcat taken along -- you guessed it -- Bobcat Alley, by Dennis Briede (above). Thanks, Dennis!

Below is one of the shots I took of Bobcat Alley  (Johnsonburg Swamp).


Look Out for the Celery Farm Mink

Barbara Dilger and I both happened upon a mink at the Spillway (by the Warden's Watch, near the parking lot) this morning around 8:40, and it did not seemed very concerned about us.

At one point it started heading in our direction and was on the Spillway bridge at one point. I took several photos before it moved away.  One of the photos is full frame with a 400mm lens, just to show you how close it got.

Nice looks at that white chin. I doubt they would go after a human but I would not linger if I saw this guy again.
