Had another wee look at this and have managed to get batteries for it. In the instructions it says to avoid rechargeable batteries but normal AA batteries should be hunky dory! It all seems easy enough! It takes AA batteries which are enclosed and protected away from the weather. I am wondering whether the motion sensor will get triggered if the weather is wild and moving the trees/ferns at the cabin. Having a feeding station might be ideal so it cuts this down. Has anyone put a wildlife feeding station together like this? Would love to hear from and follow other folks who have set this up!
