There hasn't really been any camera trap posts here for a while and with good reason. My camera is playing up. The camera keeps false triggering and eats up the memory or batteries in a single night. I tried the camera indoors to check an area I knew there was no movement but still it false triggered. I have contacted the suppliers and hopefully they will be able to sort the problem out.
If the problem cannot be resolved I am going to sell my canon eos 450d on ebay to raise some money for a new trap.
So don't worry there will be more camera trap posts soon. It may just be a while.
