The CCTV at work was upgraded;  I got to recover the old DVR and have repurposed it alongside a cheap camera mounted at low level to watch cats and other creatures in my garden. It is better than normal British TV, like having your own personal nature channel 🙂

all creatures great and small :)

The statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary also reminds me to take care with the metal box as its a 230V to 12V psu where I mislaid the case screws, there is 230V mains on terminals inside it)

catcam monitor

This cat is the ringleader, but he shares the space with around 5 others and seems to even encourage them to visit my garden…

catcam

One bonus of this arrangement is if I see a cat I can sometimes then photograph it with a better camera (the kitties are often surprised that I seem to know where they are 🙂 )

moar kittehs

cats

Kätzin, interrupted....

Interestingly they seem to behave better since the CCTV was installed; they do not fight each other and make noise with miauwing at night nor foul this side of the garden.

It is not just cats either I see on the camera…

Hedgehog seen on the catcam!

Apologies for poor quality but that is a hedgehog. Apparently these are getting rare in some bits of England so I reported the sighting to Suffolk Wildlife Trust who put it on their map. A lot of folk seem to feed hedgehogs with cat food, I wonder if they are actually following the cats around (they are too big and well protected for lazy town cats to bother with them as prey)…
