Quick wildlife camera question
My mum has loaned me her wildlife camera that she's never used as she couldn't get it to work, so that I can (hopefully) get to see the nighttime activities of my visiting hedgehog. I think I've got it working so I'll try it out for a few nights and then invest in my own if all is well. This is probably a really stupid question but.... I don't want it to go off all day, which I assume it would, as I have lots of birds feeding in my garden every day. Even if I moved Hoggie's feeding place to a less visited corner (it's currently underneath the bird feeding station) I think the camera will still catch movement from birds all day. Do others simply turn their camera off during the day and switch it on at night? Or should there be a setting where I can choose the time period it's active? The camera is not a known brand - it's from easylife - and I suspect it's a basic camera. I just wondered if others do this switching on/off thing nightly or if other cameras tend to have a time function. Also all recommendations of camera brands/models for my future purchase welcomed!
