New Toy

There was great excitement this week as we installed our new trail camera.  It's called the 'Ltl acorn' and the idea is that we can set it up in the hide or in the woods and see what wildlife comes our way.  Bob installed it a few days ago down by the wallow deep in the woods near Woodsman's cabin.  Next day, he set off bright and early to retreive the camera and then we excitedly viewed the footage.  Unfortunately, it's installation has coincided with a fungi frenzy!, the recent drought followed by warm rain seems to have produced a bumper crop of mushrooms, so the first 78 (or so) images were not of deer and boar as we'd hoped, but old men and women wandering through with baskets and sticks. Then, better, but not exactly wild - a lesser spotted Spaniel style dog mucking around, and at  last we got a couple of nice snaps of a little deer...

what the hell....?
The camera also has a timelapse option so we can use it to film the Autumn leaves as they change colour.  Can't wait for Autumn now.
