Technology advice please!

My 6 year old would like for Christmas a type of camera for outside in the garden that would capture images/video of wildlife, not specifically birds. Our house backs onto fields and we have quite an array of things visit. However i am absolutely clueless and am looking for any help i can get really, ie. is there such a thing, what's it called, what's a good one to get for absolute beginners (both of us!) Thank you in advance. 

  • You're after a Trail Camera - it will take short film clips or still images when the motion sensor is triggered. Leave it strapped to a tree for a couple of days, then plug its memory card into your PC and see what you've got. I can't recommend any from personal experience, though Bushnell ones generally seem popular - it may depend a lot on your budget

  • Hi AmyLouise

    I have a trail camera https://www.amazon.co.uk/EARTHTREE-Version-Wildlife-Scouting-Waterproof/dp/B07DWSTMGK/ref=sr_1_12?keywords=EARTHTREE&qid=1575798550&s=electronics&sr=1-12 and love it, you can get some for every type of budget and spend what you can afford.

    This is an example of the videos it takes at night.
