    Default Camera Trap footage.

    Set my new camera trap out into the Caithness countryside for the first time last week and was surprised with the results.
    Beginners luck?

    Crackin' videos, I've looked at all of them. It isn't beginners luck, there's just so much happening under our noses, all we have to do is take the time to look.

    Thanks, I was well chuffed and the trap is set again then I will move it to a new location this weekend. I did throw a handful of bird seed and peanuts down when I set it, peanuts took the martin in I suspect.

    Loving the bouncing pine martin! How expensive is the kit? I'd love to put one down on the beach, as I think we have fairly new born otter cubs up the burn that haven't left the holt yet.

    I am using a Bushnell Trophy Cam HD Max but there are lots of other models available. This one is very simple to use and can take stills as well. Here are the first visitors I had to trigger it

    Did you scent or bait the stump?

    Smear the next stump with peanut butter or jam, that should attract the martins...can't wait for the next footage.

    Thanks for the kind comments, the camera was put out again and this time positioned near lots of scat. Some great footage recorded and a wee mystery noise I am hoping someone can help me with.
