AMAZING video shows host of creatures dining at a ‘Wildlife Cafe’ in an up close and personal encounter with nature.

Trish Brewster from Kyleakin, Isle of Skye set up a ‘Wild West Wildlife Cafe’ in her garden, leaving food on a tree trunk for animals to come and graze.

The cafe has proved a hit with regular visitors such as Rudy the Pine Marten and Betty the Badger, feasting on the treats.

Trish captured the wild animals peacefully munching on the food just feet away from her door.

On the menu are peanuts, sultanas, peanut butter, jam, cheese and sometimes egg.

The clip shows a pine marten chowing down on some fruit on the tree trunk, completely oblivious to Trish’s dog, Loliflopyears, who watches through the glass door.

Later Mickey Mouse comes to feast on the grub as he scurries around the trunk looking for his favourite meal.

Finally, Betty the Badger makes an appearance later in the night, chowing down on her favourite treats.

The videos have since captured the imagination of many viewers who are in awe of the close encounters.

Trish, 54, posted three videos on Facebook to the group ‘Scotland from the Roadside’ on April 4 saying: “Three videos to cheer you up and show you who we have visiting our Wild West Wildlife Cafe nightly in the west highlands of Scotland. Rudy, Betty and Mickey.”

The video has left many in the comments marveling at the visitors.

Kimberley Campbell said: “This cheered me up, I love it so much. Cutest wee sign ever.”

Josephine Rodgers added: “How wonderful to see these beautiful creatures so close. Thank you.”

Lynn Davidson wrote: “I love this. It’s amazing to see so much wildlife at your doorstep.”

Elaine Muir said: “Love love love these videos. Thanks so much.”

Speaking, today Trish said: “We just love them coming, it cheers us up at a time like this. It’s our bit of normality. And as we’re not allowed out it helps them come to us.

“It’s a bit like a human zoo for them.

“We have a window bird feeder that they started coming too in the night when we heard noises.

“So we left curtains open and saw them. So then we started to put food down for them last March.

“I love cheering people up online and making them aware of wildlife they might not see usually. I’m happy they enjoy them as much as we do.”
