Hedgehog Cam Success!

For his birthday, Ian Hobson bought himself a Raspberry Pi, which some of you may know is a small but powerful micro-computer, about the size of a credit card. He was also given a miniature camera and therefore  needed a project …  Having made a hedgehog house the previous year, and with the sight of droppings on the lawn this spring, the inspiration came to make:- ‘Hedgehog Cam’!

After some technical wizardry, software was written to capture a full definition photo when movement was detected. Food was put out for many weeks and finally the camera switched on. The photo above was captured on only the second night!
