A Squandering Of Pixels

by admin - 16:57 on 20 June 2013

Foxes and hedgehogs continue to play hard to get when the Bushnell attempts to capture them in pixels. Mystery moggies, rooks and blackbirds (and Pandora) have no such qualms, filling the camera's memory card with video of hungry creatures in search of free food, and not a thought about the waste of battery life this causes. Don't they realise how much eight Energizer Lithiums cost?

One thing the Bushnell proved is that a rook has no problem lifting and flying away with a medium-sized hen's egg.

Tonight I'll point the Bushnell at The Nutella Tree, which nightly is stripped of chocolate spread, peanut butter, nuts and raisins. I think they're beyond the reach of mystery moggies. If I learn otherwise I may have to reconsider my distribution of freebies for wildlife.

Publishing Update: Rosemarkie People and Places continues to sell briskly; it's now available at Waterstone's. Tigger has given a date for the completion of printing of The Mystery Project so if all goes well the book will go on sale at the end of this month. I might even be allowed to reveal its title if The Mystery Author overcomes his shyness.
