    As above, has anyone had issues with the batteries on their Reolink Go? I've had my first one since September, all good no issues apart from the first week when OH and I flattened the battery playing pan & tilt with it oops. I just bought a second one for the field, but haven't fitted it yet...

    Pictures Hacking in Shropshire - Autumn Gold

    Hacking in our nearest village through a hard fought reinstated bridleway, thinking how lucky I am, to have this to hack through and a baby cob who loves it. This year has been an eye opener, if nothing else I learned to appreciate what I have and what is right under my nose. .

    Silent (ish) small & light generator for a 7.5 ton lorry recommendations please

    As above, is diesel or petrol better? Makes to avoid? Want to power plugs etc (we have fairly beefy leisure batteries and solar trickle charging for them) when staying away at shows (hopefully, if we ever get to any!) Also use at yard if required, so not too heavy to heave in and out of the lorry.
