Yesterday I set up the IR detector next to the bird table with the camera indoors to see how well the setup would work. As the sensor could 'see' through the table it would also respond to other birds at the feeders but did catch quite a few comings and goings. Nothing out of the ordinary but it was great to see a Greenfinch family visit as their numbers were drastically reduced by finch disease last year.

It didn't take long for the birds to get used to the detector being close to the table.
As the photos were taken through double glazing the originals were rather grey so they were batch processed using Paintshop Pro - another first for me.
