Sunday Quickie

Well it has been a busy time for a number of things for me of the last week - nearly all of them work related at work or home, so the opportunities to get out and about with the cameras have been limited.Today Jac and I went to the annual Gardeners World Show at the NEC.

One of the things of interest was the WildLife Whisperer stand selling all manner of 'wildlife' stuff.

I was interested to check out their various camera traps that you can check out on their site linked above.

I know Robbie has been trying out one at his home in Shetland.  I guess when you have Otters for neighbours, it is a 'must have'.  I am in two minds for the application in my wildlife garden.  I would expect to get plenty of different cats, and the odd squirrel.  The best is likely to be the Foxes passing through.

  But I am thinking of other applications that might include remote location photography where I could set it up and leave it, and I have a couple of projects in mind.  These will however have to wait for next years breeding season.

There are a number of different specifications on these traps and as always the more you pay the more features you get.   Photo quality is never going to be at the standard we are used to with pro DSLR  + pro lens kit, but as a great way to study wildlife and check out locations for activity, they could have some decent uses.

It would be good to hear from you if you have any experiences of using these.




  1. I was hoping for a recommendation from you guys - never mind - I might be able to give you some feedback for a change !

    Will pop in a purchase and let you know.

  2. Hehe - MarkO - sorry about that. I will get one at some point but it is not on my immediate spend list. Too many conflicting priorities with house renovations
