Please do not use "post comments" to ask for camera help and advice. Use phone or Skype IM in the first instance.

Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the spring of 2017.

Squirrel Feeder

This is the new Squirrel Feeder that I referred to in my last post.

It has a 6 mm wire mesh front and bottom to allow air flow and help to prevent food from growing mould because of condensation.

The lid is ultra lightweight and the notch out of the wire mesh at the top encourages easier access.

At the bottom a small platform extends to provide a perch.

I will be using these feeders in places where it's difficult or time consuming to do normal surveying. The feeder will be put out for a week or so prior to setting a trail camera over it.

I'll post the plans for the feeder at a later date so that anyone who wishes can use the design to make their own.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
