We have just seen our five baby great tits leave the camera nest box that I bought as a present in December. We have had many happy months tuning in each evening because the birds used it as a roost long before the nest building began. We had 9 eggs that all hatched but had the full drama of seeing the bigger babies snatch most of the food and the smaller ones fall by the way side despite us filling all our feeders every morning. We have filmed each stage of their existence and now have a DVD of Life with the Great Tits!! Fascinating! Kind regards, Sharman Bastin.

I was just about to email you to say that I have already received the Camera Box - it was delivered about 30 minutes ago. I am extremely impressed with the speed of the delivery. I also wish to thank you as well for your care - your customer service is excellent and I will be more than happy to recommend you to my friends and family. All I need to do now is get my box up and let the blue tits check out their new home. I cant wait to see what images we get! Kerry by email

Green Gardener - the natural way to keep your garden looking good
Camera Bird Boxes are very popular as they allow children and adults alike to watch as the birds build their nests, lay their eggs, watch as the eggs hatch and the chicks as they grow and finally leave the nest. We have sourced these top quality cedar boxes from a local company here in Suffolk. 

 

  • Choose between wired and digital wireless systems.
  • Choose between a traditional Camera Box or our "side view" Odd Box.
  • Video USB Adaptor for viewing footage on your computer.

 

"I’m still avidly watching in the hope I’ll see at least some of the chicks leave the nest. It’s been fun watching them again today! Yesterday the chicks lined up neatly for me to count them – definitely 11!" Kind regards Kay

Camera Bird Boxes are fun and educational and are enjoyed by both children and adults. Positon a camera bird box in your garden and watch as birds build a nest and lay eggs. Watch as the eggs hatch and the adults start to feed them. Watch as the chicks grow and become more demanding before finally leaving the nest!  

Camera Bird Boxes Our Camera Bird Boxes are made from high quality Cedar (sourced from well managed forests), so they will last for years PLUS they offer the birds a well insulated nest site - BEWARE of cheap imitations made from plywood! They are fitted with either high resolution colour CCD cameras (420tvl) or ultra high resolution colour CCD cameras (700tvl) - they all have infrared and audio built in, so they give fantastic picture quality and audio BOTH day and night. A built -in highly sensitive microphone helps you to hear as well as see what's going on inside the box too. The cameras fit neatly in the roof and there is only a single cable from the camera box to the TV, VIDEO or PC, which incorporates the video, audio and DC supply, so our boxes are very easy to install. Our boxes can easily be connected to a television/video or they can be connected to a PC via a video to USB adaptor. They come with either 20m or 30m of cable PLUS a scart adaptor, a 12v adaptor and full instructions. 10, 20 and 30m extension cables are also available, so you can extend the cable up to a maximum of 90m.

    

Camera Bird Box - Each box is supplied with removable front panel, so it can be open fronted or fitted with 32mm & 28mm hole protectors making it suitable for the widest range of garden birds including Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Marsh Tits, Great Tits, House Sparrows, Robins & possibly Wrens. Our boxes have small opaque windows in the side to allow just enough natural light in for our cameras to produce great quality pictures - we DO NOT use any artificial white light ,which may deter birds from nesting. The camera is mounted in a sliding drawer in the roof of the house, so the camera (and all the connections) can be easily removed for cleaning or moving to a different box. The camera is held in place with a quick release camera mounting bracket, which holds the camera in the optimum position. The camera has an adjustable focus lens, which is pre-focused to the correct position, but it can be easily adjusted at a later date should you require.

From Lorna "My daughter bought us a camera bird box for Christmas and you said to keep you informed. To my delight, tonight we have had our first egg!! Mother is in the box now, very uncomfortable, poor thing and I am sure we will have more soon. The camera is honestly one of the most wonderful presents we have ever had and is a joy to us and everyone who visits us. I run courses from home and if the enthusiasm of course members is anything to go by, you will certainly have many more customers."

"I do not normally write to praise products, but felt I had to write to thank you for the unparalleled pleasure we are having from one of your nest boxes with a colour video camera. Mr & Mrs Blue Tit started making their nest about 4 weeks ago. She laid 11 eggs over the next week or so, on which she duely sat. We named her Fil (as in Fidgety Fil - she never sat still for more than 20 seconds). Yesterday she hatched 8 (or is it 9) tiny babies, whose mouths - their gape - is just extraordinary to watch. How do they get such huge grubs in? You have to take sole responsibility for no work being done at home at present! Thank you for really brightening up our lives." Tom Moore

Odd Box Colour Camera Bird Box - This highly innovative Odd Box Camera Bird Box offers the viewer a unique ‘side on’ view (including the entrance hole) rather than the traditional ‘top down’ view. The ODD BOX continues to offer garden birds a warm and secure place to raise their family but offers the viewer a unique ‘side on’ view.  

Odd Box Colour Camera Bird Box - Side view nest box camera systems have been attempted in the past, but they have relied on a glass or clear Perspex divider between the camera and the nest to achieve the appropriate viewing angle. However, the inside of a nest box can be a messy place and although the parents try their best to keep the nest clean the glass divider can become smeared and dirty, which can ruin your view! The Odd Box Camera Bird Box eliminates this problems as it doesn’t require a glass divider.  The camera body and connections are mounted behind an opaque plastic panel fitted with a small slot for the camera lens to shoot through. As the camera is mounted at the top of the sloping side wall, nesting material and mess is kept well away in the nesting well at the base of the box.

Odd Box Colour Camera Bird Box - The camera produces great colour images during the day and with infrared built into both they also produce great black & white images at night. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye and to birds, so it will not affect their natural roosting/nesting process in any way. A small opaque windows in the top allows just enough natural light in for our cameras to produce great quality pictures - we DO NOT use any artificial white light ,which may deter birds from nesting. The camera is held in place with a quick release camera mounting bracket, which holds the camera in the optimum position. The camera has an adjustable focus lens, which is pre-focused to the correct position, but it can be easily adjusted at a later date should you require. A built -in highly sensitive microphone helps you to hear as well as see what's going on inside the box too. The Odd Box Camera Bird Box is delivered fully assembled and tested so all you have to do is position the box, plug it in and start watching!

Digital Wireless Colour Camera Box These wireless systems feature either our traditional Camera Box or the "side view" Odd combined with our ultra high resolution colour CCD cameras (700tvl) and a wireless transmitter and receiver, which allows you to beam pictures from your nest box, directly to your TV or PC (video to USB adaptor needed for connecting to a PC). The digital wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of the latest technology and much more powerful than cheaper analogue systems which are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these devices will automatically pair and channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. The transmitter and camera are separate - both fit neatly into the roof of our nest boxes and enable you to achieve reliable transmission up to 120m with line of sight.

Wireless Camera Boxes - Our wireless systems transmit pictures from the Camera Birdbox or Odd Box to your TV or PC. ALL wireless kits require a power source for the camera and transmitter, so there will be a power cable from the nest box to a convenient power source - it is illegal to disturb nesting birds, so it is impractical to run a system with batteries! The digital transmitter is housed in a weatherproof box which has a 10 meter Audio/Video/Power cable running to the camera location. The transmitter and camera require 12 volt power, a further 5 meter cable is provided to run from the transmitter box for you to plug into a mains socket, ideally located inside a shed or garage for example. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual camera can be upto 15 meters.


DC Extension Cable - A 10m DC extension cable for use with our wireless camera systems. Can be plugged together to achieve longer distances between camera and the power source. It can also be used to increase the distance between the camera and transmitter if you want to extend the range.
