Oh these are great fun!! We borrowed a friend's to see if we could find out what our poultry predator was-pretty sure a mink. It worked fantastically-I got loads of short videos of my lunatic Labradors tearing around all over the place and one of a pair of Greylags waddling past!!

The camera that I said that I was going to get? My daughters had a look at it and she says that it doesn't have the best of write ups, so I'm still undecided as to which one to send for.

I doubt that I will be lucky enough to capture one of these though.

Which reminds me that I must plant some more reeds around our garden pond.

Well fingers crossed. I was allowed to officially open my Christmas present and just a few minutes ago I set the trail cam up in one of our field gateways. I can't wait to see what if anything the morning brings. My best bet would be on a load of cats but at any rate, it will be interesting to see if we've set it at the right height.

Not quite a blank but almost. I got this one last night.







and when I let the ducks out this morning, one of the ducks got to the camera before I did.









I'm going to have great fun with this little gizmo.

I've just repositioned the camera so its watching a fox or badger run through one of our hedges.

I got this at picture 8.40am this morning.









but just a few hours earlier, this b*****d passed the same fence post on its way towards my chickens.









I've had a fiddle with the camera settings to see if I can get some clearer pictures.

I'll get a decent one of him eventually. I got this one in our garden during the early hours this morning.
