Arrival at 7.30pm and Weather Conditions
The weather was cool crisp with no wind, temperature reading showed 10.7c and it was over cast, no moon was showing at the time, most of these conditions stayed the same throughout the investigation except for the temperature, it dropped as the night went on as one would expect, there may have been the threat of rain but it held off for the duration of the investigation.
Set up went smoothly: only a few lose connection needed attention, and all our portable equipment booted up without any problems.
We placed DVR cams in all 3 bedrooms, the lounge area, also the step down part of the lounge, the kitchen and the hallway facing down towards the bathroom, and also the hallway towards the front of the house. We had them placed so we covered most of the house and our movements. All our portable equipment that we used on the night was Infrared, Thermal or Full Spectrum with the exception of the Laser Grids.
Start of the investigation 8.30pm
First of Brenda noticed that the bedroom opposite the kitchen hall doorway was a lot cooler than the rest of the house, the lounge and the kitchen area at this time was still reading 10.5c, but this bedroom was 6.9c, that is a large difference in temperature in such close proximity, I believe the family have named this bedroom the dark room.
We had 1 x 30mtr IRCCDTV Cam and 1 x Full spectrum video camera coupled up with an 80mtr Infrared lamp, and a Thermal imaging camera all mounted on tripods covering the room, also a digital audio recorder.
We held two vigils in the dark room during the investigation each lasting about 20 minutes, even though we did not get any response to our vigils, we all felt that this room had a different feel to it compared to the rest of the house, this feeling we all had while in the dark room went past the obvious temperature difference, actually for some unknown reason during one of the vigils I (George), started to ask specific questions about a young boy and his mother, even to date I have no idea why I took on this line of questioning as I do not hold any special gift in the spiritual way.
We did not get anything on our recording equipment out of the dark room, but our EMF meter did respond a few times while the vigil was being held, this could have been in response to our questions about the boy and mother, there was a big gap between question and the possible responses, so we are unsure if we can call the EMF readings responses or active movement, as we could not find any mechanical emission source for the EMF readings.
A continuous thermal sweep of the room while we were in there showed nothing out of the ordinary, it did confirm the temperature in the room at the time 6.5c.
The dark room held our interest all evening; it was as if someone was drawing our attention to it, and we all found out afterwards in a discussion that we all felt this way about the dark room, and it could hold at least part of the key to the activity that is being experienced in the house.
Main Living Area:
Some orb anomalies were captured in the lounge area, these seemed to move very smoothly with no erratic changes in direction, and they seemed to be emitting their own energy. we have looked at these orb captures very closely and we have ruled out dust and bugs, also they do not look like any pollen we know of, and the fact they seem to have their own energy source and the way they move in a smooth and controlled manor, this is why we have come to the conclusion that they are most probably orbís.
It is a widely held theory all over the world, that orbs are a form of spiritual energy, and can use this form to travel and move about, there is no solid proof of this theory on orbs, but paranormal investigators all over the world have seen enough orbs in active locations to put the two together, and come to this conclusion, I can say over the past four years that I have been investigating the paranormal, I have seen enough orbs that has helped me understand why the two are paired together and formed the orb theory.
We held a long vigil in the main lounge area as there are two lounges, there was nothing on the audio recording from any of our vigils held in this room, and the temperature in the lounge at 10pm was 8.7c compare to the smaller lounge 9.5c.
Several thermal sweeps of the area showed nothing of interest, we do these sweeps at random; the sweeps backed up our temperature readings from out IR thermometers.
orb anomalies we recorded traveling through the this area each traveling in different directions, most of these were tracked into the kitchen and into the lounge area, some are not as obvious as the others, also some orbs movements differed to the others some change direction and course, this could indicate controlled movement , as if on a pathway which could be repetitive residual energy from the past, someone's spirit or energy from the past could be repeating: a path they may have taken many times before while alive. As always we did several thermal sweeps with nothing out of the ordinary.
This room held some interest to us on the night, we had several EMF runs and spikes at random al through the night, these EMF runs and spikes would at times max out the meters, this happened so many times we lost count, and we were not able to take an accurate record of the precise Emf levels as we were busy looking investigating the cause: we were unable to find any visible source for the EMF.
This sort of EMF response in the past has lead us to suspect that paranormal activity is present, there was an abundance of this type of EMF in that room while we were there.
Other vigils in this room throughout the evening, each time we received some responses via the EMF meter, another interesting point, most of the responses we received in this room was received after Brenda asked a question, whom ever was in the room with us seemed to be more comfortable with Brenda as she got several responses.
After viewing all the recorded data there was not a lot of interest to report to our client, what we did get left us wondering if there is more as the house had a deep menacing atmosphere, along with the personal Experiences and all the reported activity accounts by the tenants all added together, that lead us to the conclusion that some activity may be happening at the residence, we advised the client that we would like to do another investigation at a later date, they agreed and welcomed the offer.
As the clients were not worried about the activity in there home, they would like help to try and identify what the activity is in there home, when we left family were in good spirits with no fear of the activity as they had gotten use to it.

These are just a few snap shots of some of the movement we recorded, this did not move or look like dust. All of our cams are HD and a bug looks like a bug and so on. I would like to mention that this is only our opinion, and we are in no way offering these snaps shots as proof that orbs exist. This field still needs a lot more hard evidence before anyone could make that claim.
