I take it your talking about ! Trail Cameras! as you say you want to move it around, I f your looking for a decent one which isnt going to break the bank, have a look at the Meidase Trail Cam, (Amazon) 30mgp and 4k video I got one after one of mine got lifted, "one off the hazzards with them unfortunatly," and picture quality is good compaired to my others, and only takes a short while to download to social media etc. for less than £60 cant be all bad

I bought an Amazon offer trail cam at £30 it is really quite good but uses eight AA batteries, I am currently watching my hedgehog hotel, trying to determine what critters are around.
Currently one active hog and one that starts making eerie noises if we disturb it, oh! and a mouse!
I think it was called a Victure?

Should you spend money on a mink trap instead then there will be some wildlife left to film later ... ? 🤔

Setting a few mink traps might result in more mink than expected and be generally beneficial.

I was asked if paw prints around a watercourse were Mink or Otter (which are protected of course)
Being only an amateur I could only say that Mink paw prints are smaller and can be covered by a £2.00 piece, Otter prints are bigger and a different shape. Wildlife people put out trays of soft clay
to get samples of prints.
