I’ve had some trail cameras for a while. I put them on my allotment one year when I had a den of foxes at the bottom of the plot. It’s amazing the shots I got. The slightly dark one is a young fox playing with a frog.
We tried out a new trailcam on a local Badger sett for 2 weeks. Turns out that it has 850nm LEDs which give off quite a bright red glow, and not the invisible 940nm ones. Poor guy couldn’t take it and repeatedly attacked it over several days. When we found it, it was covered in mud and open. Luckily he couldn’t manage to get the memory card out! It’s worth checking what type of LEDs your cam has. This one is useless for wildlife although sold for that.
@PingSpike Thanks Rich, I’m suffering from information overload at the moment. Been looking at the reviews of several cameras, Apeman, etc and they all have their good and bad faults. Have you had any problems with yours? Some of the cameras has red leds which tend to frighten animals away, see above from @ash2020 @ash2020 Which camera is yours, so I know to steer clear?
