Capture syslog messages from a device on the LAN

Got a Ubuntu system.
Have a device on my LAN that can send Syslog messages.

I would like to:
1. Capture these specific syslog messages.
2. Keep them separate from any other syslog activity on the Ubuntu system.
3. View these syslog messages later.

How can I do this?

I like syslog-ng which should not be a problem for you to setup.
