10 to 12 inches long. Moves to fast to be vegetation. Is too big to be a mouse or anything of that size. Picture taken in the dark on animal tracking night vision camera with no flash.
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
That's a toughie. Got any more clue's, size etc?
If you mean the vague shape that seems to have a nose to the left, just over the curve in the log, that is the vegetation behind caught in the flash. There might be a mouse just right of centre showing paler, but even that is not certain.

On the vertical mid-line of the picture, in the middle of the pale fuzzy patch, there is the slight impression of a face like an owlet-nightjar or a teddy bear, inclined at about 20 degrees from vertical. It could be vegetation, a ghost, or who-knows-what.
any chance to see it on video as this would help with identification
How do i upload a video on here?
Hi Zoe - I think the easiest way is to upload the video to YouTube and then post the hyperlink in a message here.
Hope that helps.

I would be more convinced that the circled object was animate if you could post a pic of the same view when it was not there. If animate, it is probably a mouse.
It is too big to be a mouse, unless the mice you get in your garden are between 10 and 12inches long? It is not a rat as I have several videos off the same camera of a rat. To answer your previous post there is no flash 1) because it was a video. 2) because the camera does not have a flash.
Also, the object you thought was a mouse in your first post is actually an over turned bowl that was put outside for the dog to drink from.
If you are a going to reply in future I would prefer if you could be less patronising. Thanks.
Dear Zoe, first welcome to iSpot.
I do not think that Syrphus was being patronising. Your photograph is very difficult to interpret and it is quite reasonable to question what it shows. If Syrphus did not notice your comment as to size (I had to check myself), then his comment is perfectly reasonable.
Its very easy to fall out with people this way, but iSpot is not the kind of place where that happens and we wish to keep it that way. Tolerance is our code.
Please do upload your video to Youtube and place a link to it in a comment here. Then there will be more evidence with which we can help you.
Many thanks and happy iSpotting,

I upload my video footage onto Flickr and put stills onto Ispot.Sorry I cannot help with this as it's rather hard to tell from the photo but size can be rather deceptive when you have nothing to gauge it against.I have just got some lovely footage of a fox and a big badger which are on Flickr but have not yet put the stills on ispot. Please don't think anyone is being patronising as Jonathan has said were a very friendly bunch on ispot and everyone who participates is here to help and encourage please continue to use and enjoy ispot as it's a great site for people with all different levels of knowledge.
Hi Zoe - I would agree with Sheila's comment. I have been on iSpot for nearly 3 years and it is a great online community for people with an interest in wildlife, so please don't be discouraged from using it.
Sorry, there is just not enough in the photo. If you are able to link to the video then I may have a better chance by seeing how it moves.

It will not let me upload the video on Flickr, is there any other sites you can suggest?
Hi Zoe - YouTube is the easiest (I managed it:-)) Go to http://www.youtube.com/ and click on Sign In. If you've used any other iGoogle services like Picasa, GMail, Google Calandar, Blogger etc., you should be able to sign into YouTube with the same email address and password, otherwise you just register as a new user. Then click on Upload (at the top) and you're off!
