While in Costa Rica I set up trail cameras in five locations around the country in the hope of capturing one or more of the cat species there, amongst other things. During my time there, all they captured was Collared Peccary, Agouti, Tayra and 9-banded Armadillo. I decided to leave one camera trap set up in a place that seemed promising for cats in an area of lowland tropical forest on the Osa Peninsula, and persuaded a kind local to check the camera occasionally for me. The first batch of photos have shown that it captured White-nosed Coati, Agouti, Collared Peccary, Northern Tamandua, Raccoon and best of all, this Ocelot.

Beaumaris Castle (beau mareys - beautiful marsh) was the last of Edward I's fortresses in North Wales. Work started in 1295 and continued for 35 years, with over 3,500 workmen employed at the peak of construction. Beaumaris castle was positioned to face Garth Celyn on the opposite shore of the Menai Strait and was intended, along with Conwy Castle and Caernarfon Castle at either end of the Menai Strait, to overshadow the Welsh Royal home and centre of resistance to the English forces. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaumaris_Castle
