Just in case anyone's interested, and has an Aldi near them, they have a Wildlife Trail Cam on offer tomorrow at £79-99

Thanks WS - tempting and good value for sure, but I struggle to get my 2 out at times, although 3 would be very useful!

How brilliant is that, I don't have an Aldi near me or not one that I know of which is a real shame else I would get one for sure. Not sure where I would place it but I am sure I would find somewhere.
I hope you manage to get yours WS and look forward to what you capture Very Happy

Got one OK. I'm quite impressed with it, I've done a couple of test pics, and a video, and they seem OK looking at the screen on the camera. Batteries are on charge, it takes 4, but it has a back up storage that takes another 4, so you can double the time it operates if you want. All I've got to do now is decide where to put it  Might not be till after the weekend as I'm working from tomorrow

That's great news WS.  We've now got rechargeable batteries as at one point we seemed to get through a lot.  Same with the 4 + 4 backup.

Really look forward to some clips soon.

We've not put ours out for a while now due to being a bit busy and I think the fox cubs have moved but I did catch them once.

Testing the Trail Cam out overnight last night. I captured this big dangerous hunting prey during the night



Turns out it was'nt dangerous she was just a pussy cat after a moth

PS I always use rechargable batteries, and alwayshace a backup set in the camera case

I wanted to see what the infrared was like, there was only a small amount of light leaking in from a small light in the hall. She was a bit close but it seems to work ok.

my mum had a small inheritance from her dad and she decided that my brother and I should have some of the money. So I have today bought a trail cam and I am going to put it first in my window overlooking my bird feeder to see what pics I get. Hopefully if I can get it all sorted them I will post them on here

 Thats great news you've got a trail Cam PPH. I did the same afet trying it out on the firt night I got it on Poppy, really just to get the hang of how it worked. Then I put it near to our Bird Feeders to record what was happening. I'm sure you'll get it set up OK, if you have any problems just ask, I think they are all basicly the same format, so we should be able to help. I know Lai has one as well.

What an exciting thing to spend some of your inheritance on PPH and it will give you loads of fun as well. Your feeders are often quite busy so you should be able to get some great footage and fingers crossed you can get it sorted to post on here.
Im really pleased for you Very Happy

Post  princesspurplehippy on Sat Dec 14, 2013 2:18 pm

bit of a hiccup with the camera. it turns out it uses PIR (Passive Infra Red) which doesnt work through a window      

So Ive had to find a place in the hedge outside of my window that is within range of my bird feeder and also hidden so it doesnt get seen or stolen by any passing naughty person. I think I managed to find a place and after 20 mins of struggling with prickly branches, with many scratches to my hand, I have fixed it in place. Hopefully it will work and I will get some good pics.

Do you know PPH never thought of that, my feeders outside the window, but what I did was fix it to a drainpipe by the side of the feeder, but it is really quiet where we live, and really no danger of someone pinching it. I can imagine it being very awkward where you live. Really hope you get some great pics, after all the effort, and scratches.
