“Actually the camera was not found by the hunters, but their dog, Ole Trygve Foseide, co - editor of website Trollheimsporten.no tells The Foreigner. “The camera was found under a deceased grouse.”

Website staff placed an appeal on the site following receipt of the items with some photos to trace the mystery photographer. It read "if you know these pictures, you can also get the 205 other photos".

It took less than a day for readers to identify the owner of the memory card from the broken camera found in Folddalen, a valley with Frøya, Sør-Trøndelag County
