The deer are out in full force! We're actually seeing a lot more than usual, for this time of year. Particularly at our main gate. With how dry this winter had been, I suspect they are hunting for water sources. These ones were caught on the trail cam a couple of evenings ago. Can you … Continue reading So many deer!
Found in this morning's trail cam images. There were three deer in the group. The first two slipped through the fence, in between the wires. The third one decided to take a flying leap!
Ah, how looks can be deceiving! Outside my window, the sky is clear, the sun shines brightly, and not a twig or branch in my view is moving from anything other than birds landing on them. As I write this, our temperature has warmed up to -24C/-11.2F, with a wind chill of -34C/-29.2F When I … Continue reading A good day for a hot cup of tea!
We've had ourselves a chillier morning today! Light snow, and bitterly cold winds from the south is what greeted me this morning, when I went out to do my rounds. Kitty loaf is not impressed. It does look pretty, though! Switching out the micro disk cards on the new trail cam has gotten somewhat easier. … Continue reading Delivery Fail, and coming unhinged
We are having some beautifully mild weather right now - the forecasts are still predicting we will hit a couple of degrees above freezing! (and I'm already seeing people "blame" it on climate change, as if we've never had warm Januaries before... *sigh*). Our hard wired security camera is set to take a photo and … Continue reading In the pink
We had ourselves a very pleasant surprise today! Company! Sort of... I got an email from my older brother, asking if he could swing by this afternoon. Considering that it's a 1 1/2 hour drive for him, this was a welcome surprise! I got his message after doing my morning rounds, which included changing the … Continue reading Clearing snow before it snows, and I think they’ve figured it out!
So we had a couple of issues with the new camera, but they're only partly related to the camera itself. My routine with the trail cams is to switch memory cards every morning (weather willing). The first time I switched out the micro disc on this camera, I wasn't able to see the screen inside … Continue reading CamPark T40 Trail Camera: did it pass the big test?
I was quite looking forward to seeing how the new camera worked after it's first night. We got a few centimeters of snow last night, and it was blowing quite a bit - I had 400 images of snow from the garage camera in my email this morning, and I'd already deleted about 300 before … Continue reading CamPark T40 Trail Camera: first day review
I have been really looking forward to this new trail camera! This brand is not available in any of our local stores. The ones I've seen are pretty much the same design, if not the brand, of what we already had. I was perfectly willing to go with the same brand to replace the old … Continue reading CamPark T40 Trail Camera unboxing
So, I think this is a sign... For the first time since we cleaned and refilled this barometer, it has overflowed! As I write this, it's already 28C/82F and we've got weather alerts for heat and thunderstorms. Looking at the weather radar, it looks like we might actually get some rain. That would be nice! … Continue reading Feeling the heat, and fun stuff
