Got a couple of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264413563959 and first images below , can do 1080pvideo aswell but yet to try it.






I positioned it under an old patio table and put a plastic cover on the table to keep the worse of the weather off it.

The peg is to keep it steady in the wind and agle it a bit.

Great idea.  Presume that was a Hedgehog, looked like a tortoise at first.

How does it work?
Battery, triggered by movement?

You can take images or sets of 2/3 images, or Video 1080p all triggered by PIR. Takes 8 x AA batteries, but its very low power consumption,

and one image from the image camera

I am on a learning curve ie Positioning and framing. I should put the peanut butter on a dish closer to the camera(attached to tree).

Very good Roger
Nice hedgehog (we don't get those here).

Noel
Synta mount, a bunch of telescopes and a shed (on wheels).

No hedgehogs round here, either. Too many badgers. We also see muntjac and roe deer in the garden from time to time, though at present the heavy machinery is probably keeping them all (even the badgers) away.
