Trail Cameras

I use a number to trail cameras according to the time of year and available locations. Several are set up at the Pond Hide and several at the Windmill Pond. Some take photos exclusively at night and others operate 24 hours. I am also starting to use trail

cameras at mammal nest boxes so that I can discover whether any mammals are using them without disturbing the animals that might be inside. Other trail cams have been placed at rabbit burrows to record any predators that are attracted to the warrens.

Mostly I use rechargeable batterues though I also have a couple of cameras powered by solar panels. Some trail cameras are attached to wooden posts if the location is likely to be used for a long time. Other trail cameras are put onto small tripods so they

can easily be relocated to another site.

 

These are two Bushnell Trophy Cam Aggressor HD No Glow trail cameras. One is set to only take photos at night and the other is set for 24 hours per day. The quality of night-time photos tends to often be better quality if the trail camera only takes photos at night.

This Trail Camera is a Reconyx HP2W Professional White Flash Camera. Unlike nearly all other Trail Cameras this one does not use infra-red flash for night-time photos. Instead it has a White Light flash. As a result this camera can take Colour photos at night, whereas other trail cams only take black and white photos after dark.

As this camera is a little more intrusive due to the flashlight it is only used in non-sensitive locations. So far our resident mammals such as otter and badgers have shown no adverse reactions to its use.
