After losing my fox photos yesterday I wanted to spend some time getting used to setting up aiming the trail cam, so I set it up through the day in the garden to catch photos if the birds in my garden.
The first catch came from the ever greedy starlings.
Not a bad start, but the light settings weren’t quite right and the camera wasn’t quite positioned right.
I tried it on the grass, but placed the camera a bit close to the meal worms I’d left to entice them in, so it needed re-angling.
I put the camera to the side while I did my gardening. I found a little friend had an attraction to the mower.
One of my neighbours had been clearing the jungle of wildflowers at the back of his house leading to a mass snail exodus.

I then reset the trap cam and took Alice for a walk around the block. There were some beautiful looking gardens currently and the bees and other pollinators were out in force.
Back at home the tram cam had captured a few more birds.
I decided to try the grass again, this time using a feeder to aim at.
