16:55-56 loud scratching noises near the camera. Then male came in sight and went inside. Maybe (s)he had a pee?

12:28 There is something wrong with the camera view. It looks very overexposed.

Hello ...

Cam is working again, but I'am not sure, why EENET broadcasts a black image. They did total reset of the camera yesterday, and right now it is probably still in some half-configured state. All participants are really struggling to keep those cameras alive. Because both cams (deer and badger) running with own set of lighting, and batteries is rather old, there is barely enough time to recharge new set before another is dying at the site. Most of the time battery power gets too low before new set arrives, and that creates many unexpected glitches. In addition to that, there has been several equipment faults, most of them power related as well. Seems like after years of running, a total overhaul of the whole system is needed. I have heard some thoughts on that direction. Will see ...
