What happened at Nossob? Looks like a tree fell over on the Cam?

:) No it was not me.

I think something/somebody physically rotated the whole cam body as all the presets were out with at least 30 degrees. I reset te presets again yesterday and it should be fine now again. (The camera reboots every time power is cut and restored to it - bear in mind Nossob runs from a generator and it does not run all the time). As the generator is started again early morning, the camera reboots and returns to its "home" position which is a preset and if the camera is not oriented physically correctly, the cam "thinks" it is looking at the correct angle but then it is not!

All fixed yesterday! Happy camming!
