Camera trap photos

Post  Laikipia on Mon May 14, 2012 4:09 pm

We decided to try the camera trap that Pete gave me in a place where we know the kingfisher likes to fish. These aren't very clear pics but as a first attempt, not too bad.

The heron last night


A Kingfisher up bright and early and with a fish










We can use it on video or still shots so will try it out again later.

Fantastic Lai well done lovely to see the Kingfisher, and the Heron. Badgers would be good, and it might be an idea to have a go at positioning it look out over your feeders one night just to see what visits. I would love to put one in the stables here, to see the Swallows. We have had baby Sparrows at the feeders today, going to try to see if I can set my cam up to see them, but its difficult with the speed I get, would like to try it from outside, but the weathers against it.

Good idea WS, I will try the apple tree as so many birds visit it, today I am going to put it where the badgers pass and then tonight I'll put some nuts out and see what happens. I'll have to keep the dogs away as they eat anything!

It's been torrential rain overnight so I didn't put it out last night - bit of a fair weather person me cheers

Those are amazing pics

What camera trap do you have and is it easy to set up as I was thinking of getting one to point at my bird feeder but don't know the first thing about camera traps

Me neither PPH - Pete bought it for me some time ago and I've been meaning to try it properly for ages.

It's a Ltl Acorn but I'm not sure which model, but not HD. I can have a look when I get home later.

No sadly we only got Penny and a passing Heron (body only). I guess the badgers pass through from time to time, we haven't given up though ......

A bit of a failure with the camera trap. 3 nights on the gate post where the badgers have been known to pass.

All I got was, lots of jackdaws, 1 pheasant, our tractor, several times Laughing Pete's legs and guess what? Penny again.

Tonight I am on the move again ..... i've some exciting news but need to check it out first, apparently we've a vixen with 4 cubs but I don't want to get too close and will investigate with my binos and no dogs later.

OMG I am bouncing around now knowing you have a vixen and cubs, if you need to camp out all night.......please do bounce
Seriously, how exciting for you but I completely understand you don't want to get too close as to scare the vixen and then she has to move the cubs and that may not be such a good move, for their safety we can forego photo's and updates will be good enough, however, wouldn't it just be fantastic if the trap could capture them.
Good luck with spotting them with the Bino's Lai and Doogs is right, who needs Springwatch with Lai Pai on the trail cheers

My plan is for Pete and I to go over the weekend early evening and sit and watch with our binos. I am not entirely sure of the location of the den only which copse it is in so closely examination is essential! If at all possible I will take the camera trap and also my camera once we know what's what. Needless to say I am really excited

No Embarassed Sorry to say we didn't even get to go over the weekend, I was working Sunday and time flew by. One evening this week we'll take a walk over there and see if we can find these little cubs.
