It has now been a full year that my trail cam has been situated on the beech tree on my patch and what a year it has been.
It has been running 24/7 in that time with occasional breaks where the camera batteries died or I forgot to switch it back on when swapping out the camera card. Over the year the camera didn't record for 7 of the 52 weeks and in total was active for 7476 hours.
Its too early to give you a full analysis of my findings but I can give you a quick run down of facts.
In the 7476 hours the camera recorded the following animal activation's:
616 Grey Squirrel
354 Wood Mice
Several Brown Rats
1 Polecat !!!!!
And the following birds:
Below are the up to date graphs of abundance, I will go over these in greater detail once I have had time to analyse the data but its because fairly clear that there are patterns evident I thought I would let everyone have a look.
