It is the very first time my Trailcam gets to take a Serval. If you have ever seen a person jumping up-and-down in the bush, that was me on Sunday morning when I went to check my camera. I knew that there should theoretically be Servals here, but this is the first one I captured in over 7 months.
Sadly, even though my camera was set on video mode, it only took images. I have no idea why? Would it do that if the memory card was too small or too full? My disappointment was huge because I had the Serval pushing its face into the camera and urinating in front of it. What cool videos that would have made!!
Just have a look at the lovely set of images captured. n
I left my camera at the same spot, but with a clean and bigger memory card, but no more visitors when I checked this morning, maybe next week…

Lovely to see the serval even though disappointing not to get a video. Potential camera-corroding behaviour though on behalf of the cat!
