WildLog v3

Some of you might know that I have developed a small application (called WildLog) for myself to help keep track of my wildlife sightings. For those interested, take a look at the PDF user guide or give the application a try.

It isn't a serious scientific tool, neither is it a easy way to organize your camera trap images. I don't really know what it is, except that it is what I wanted it to be (at least to some extent). There is a part of me that is still hopeful that maybe some school or hobbyist might find it useful in some way, but I'm not breaking a sweat over it :)

I use WildLog to keep track of my vacation and camera trap sightings of mammals and other animals. Your welcome to give it a try and use it for whatever you may like, however, use it at your own risk.

I've set this weekend aside to finish up some long awaited changes to the program. A lot have changed, thus the new version isn't compatible with the old one (unless you do some behind the scenes hacking as I've done with my own data set). If there are actually some users out there that are effected by this, drop me an email and I'll try help you out.

The downloads can be found over here (use the link at the top of the blog for the latest version) for those that might be interested.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing your fine photos and stories, and now software too - very kind of you!
    I've been enjoying your blog for some time, especially happy to see all the wildlife you've recorded around the Cape as I used to live there way back.
    Just getting starting with a remote camera myself and need a quick way to log pics... looking forward to trying your software.
    Thanks again!

  2. Henry, thank you for making this available. I've been thinking for some time of a logical way to save my images. I've downloaded Wildlog and will give it a go. As I'm rather technologically challenged you might get a few dumb questions from me in future.
