bluetit nesting

 

The specially produced Birdboxview nestbox is 27cm tall - the extra height allows you to view the whole nest.

It is carefully fitted with a tiny webcamera near the top facing the nesting area.
The nestbox has a 40mm wide round opaque plastic window for extra light:
ensuring a good image in the dimmest of conditions.

The 29mm entrance hole is ideal for bluetits, finches, sparrows, pied flycatchers and other small garden birds.

A cleaning slot in the base of the box allows debris from the nest to be pushed out by the birds.

The nestbox lid is hinged to lift up easily for camera angle adjustment and ease of cleaning at the end of the breeding season and the solid but light construction gives longevity with ease of handling.
 

FULL, EASY TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS on all aspects of using, siting and maintaining your webcamera nestbox are provided on the INSTRUCTION PAGE here and also as a shorter printed sheet with the item.
See our BIRD FACTS page for more interesting information about caring for the birds in your garden
and attracting them to nest there!

Webcam birdbox systems are becoming increasingly popular with naturelovers. The advantages of webcam birdboxes over conventional AV (cctv) set-ups include:

  • View anywhere you wish using laptop or pc.
  • No need for a power source in the garden/battery box fitted to the birdbox as your computer's usb automatically
    powers the camera!


  • The colour quality is superb whereas it can be unreliable on CCTV
  • Its so easy to record the activity in the box and share it!
  • The LED lighting will work in the dark but we suggest you disconnect camera from pc/turn down the lights once
    the birds have roosted for the night so as not to disturb their natural day/night cycle - you won't miss much,
    once birds have roosted they don't move until daybreak!

    NOT A SUITABLE SYSTEM FOR WATCHING NOCTURNAL CREATURES.
