The BadgerCam in action

The trail camera arrived and after the usual configuration issues I got it to work. We strapped it to a tree in our front garden and placed a bowl of old dry cat food about five feet in front of it (which you can just see at the bottom of the image below). The camera was set on a timer from 9 pm to 8 am. This is what we saw,

The cat approaches ...

At 4.06 am, the cat turns his nose up at the ancient dry stuff

The camera is a bit too high, and I really meant it to be taking both still pictures and videos, but only still pix were in the folder. Must revisit that menu item. Now we know it works I think we'll maybe relocate the camera - after all, still no badger!
