The birds and the bees

From Simon's beekeeping blog. Comments are welcome via email.


D and Dave have a cool camouflaged motion-activated trail camera that they use to capture photos and video of wildlife. They set the camera up for a week or two and if it sees any motion, it records images or video onto a micro SD card, using night vision if it's dark. The results are usually pretty good. We've seen plenty of deer, foxes and rabbits, for example.

Here we can see a nice view of our two hives in the rather long grass, taken on Tuesday morning at half-past seven. Two birds are perched on the gate and another one is just coming in to join them. Of course, there's not a bee to be seen.
