Martyn Jolley, who lives in Chatteris, has captured all sorts of animals, including hedgehogs at night, mice looking for crumbs and - in his own words - ‘a pigeon acting brave’.

His videos show how nature is carrying on as normal - even while the rest of the world slows down due to the coronavirus.

He said of the videos: “It’s nice to see nature going about its business.

“Capturing their habitats and funny things they do helps to take your mind off of things in our world.

“I hope it will make people laugh and brighten up the day for people.”
