Trail Camera – Badger, Genet and Wild Boar

Trail Camera – Badger, Genet and Wild Boar

It has been a game of patience with the camera trap over the past 6 weeks.  I’ve positioned the camera at a friend’s hotel and farm – Posada del Valle.  We used several locations around the farm and surrounding woodland with varying degrees of success. The sensitivity of the camera is impressive, even picking out mice moving through long grass.  However, this advantage comes at a price, 30 clips of grass and branches blowing in the wind can be very frustrating! I’m very pleased to catch sight of the genet again and the wild boar wallow appears well established and I’m very hopeful for future recording there. Share...

Trail Camera (Test I) – Fox

Trail Camera (Test I) – Fox

I recently purchased a Bushnell HD Trophy Cam.  I’m very excited by its potential for wildlife watching.  Below is a test clip of 2 foxes.  Positioning the camera can be quite tricky as the sensors are strong (note the white overexposed area on the grass, as the camera has been set too close).  It can record stills or HD video, switching from colour during the daytime to black and white at night. With luck I will be adding clips regularly, who knows may be even an otter! Share...
