Scottish wild cat spotted early one morning crossing the A38 at Upton Warren, Worcestershire, heading off towards the sailing centre.
Definitely a Scottish wildcat, thought it was a fox at first but then the headlights lit it up and he stood and stared right back.
It was a bit thin, but would find plenty to eat here as its all fields, woodland and moorland.
Hi Martin… thanks for taking the time to post this.
Of course the big question is, is it a Scottish wildcat particularly as you have said it was thin?
Domestic or feral grey tabby cats with good markings will look like a small, thin genuine Scottish wildcat.
I am not saying that you are wrong. But this wildcat does look like a tabby cat and at a distance and on the move, it is likely that you are mistaken as you were hundreds of miles south of where the range of this species stops.
