Camera Traps

On this page are a few links to videos i have taken using a Trail cameras or Camera Traps.

A fun and interesting way to find out which animals are using an area during the night, with the excellent facility to film Infra red footage in the dark. Trail cameras however can also produce resonable still images and video in daylight.

I bought a fairly cheap trail camera / camera trap in January 2017 and have been very pleased with the initial results from it. Daylight video is not of the greatest quality but I have been impressed with the after dark footage that it has shot of nocturnal mammals, when triggered at night. A very useful piece of kit which is both enjoyable to use and helps to provides a good incite into which animals are around. It's also quite fascinating to watch them behaving naturally, as of course they have no idea.

The below video was all shot at night with the above trail camera. As you can see it has responded well and triggered just when required providing images of Badger, Fox, Rat and Wood Mouse behaving naturally. It has also picks up sound verey well. A great peace of kit.
