Nesting box action

In a previous post I wrote about the nest box with a web can attachment that was being used to stream video to a laptop indoors.
If you are interested we have put together some web pages that will record the main activity. You can access it using this link and I have also posted a link near the top of the blog sidebar.

I'm afraid it isn't live action but it will give an insight into what has been happening.

I have been asked about the kit that we use and so the link to the site that we bought it from is here.

  1. Is that circular thing on the side of the box a window?

    1. Yes it is Mark it allows more light in for better photographic images

    2. Just to add it's this window that shows photographs and video clips and is not the exit hole.

  2. It's great that you're able to see what's happening inside the box. My bluetits are in and out of my box so it looks as though they'll be nest building.

    1. Are they gathering material yet Jo?

    2. They are. They've been in and out for a while but I've only seen them flying in with material since yesterday afternoon, it's all very exciting.

  3. I clearly remember watching the silhouettes of blue tits in the nesting box in our garage when I was about 5 or 6 years old. The back of the nesting box was glazed and had brown paper over it and we had to be very quiet when we viewed them. How far we have come! I think I might ask for one of those cameras for Christmas. (It's never too early to compile a list).

  5. Oh fascinating stuff Sue. We have a camera which streams to the television. So far this year although there is material accumulating in the box we have yet to see any sign of a bird :)

  6. Great idea Sue! I've never provided a special place for the birds that visit my garden. I let them come and go
