Pictures from the woods - The webcam is be broadcasting pictures 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from a series of cameras located in Whitmore Wood :-
"Can we just say how much we are enjoying your baby bird webcam. We are a small school in Kenilworth, Crackley Hall, and my little class of 6 and 7 year olds love to check what’s happening regularly throughout the day." Many thanks, Carrie Holmes
"It is so amazing seeing what happens, it really makes you think about things that you take for granted!! I can't wait to see how many eggs have hatched, i thought 9 of the 11 but i think it may be less!! I will keep watching!!" Anne
"Hi Jonathan. 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
"Hello Jon. I think I’ve managed to count 11 blue tit chicks which, if I’m right, means that all the eggs hatched successfully! Thanks so much for putting the feed from the web cam online, it’s been a delight to watch for the last week or so – rather like having a personal ‘Springwatch’ on my PC!" Best wishes,Heather Bird
"Your bird box webcam lightens my working day – I like to check it to see whether anything is nesting there yet. I notice a bird was sleeping in it the other night!" Thanks Jo
"I would like to add my grateful thanks to those of your other birdcam watchers for being able to watch your marvellous movie and its beautiful feathered star! It is coming into winter here in Australia, and it is good to be reminded of the inevitable return of spring." Regards, Jillian Heeley, Canberra
"Thanks so much for providing hours of avid watching the bluetits grow and develop. I have been glued to the webcam and thought thay may go today but horror of horrors, whilst writing a quick email, they've disapperaed and Ive missed them!!!! I'm stunned! We have a boxful of our own again this yearafter thinking it wasn't occupied so perhaps to avoid disappointment, I may have to put a webcam on my wishlist for next year! Many thanks for providing us with a close-up of nature at its best." Ann Grindey by email
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 grade Western Red 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 standard resolution CMOS cameras (420tvl)or high resolution CCD cameras (520tvl) - 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 with a 32mm entrance hole making it suitable for the widest range of garden birds including Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Marsh Tits, Great Tits, House Sparrows, Robins (with the front panel removed) and possibly Wrens. Our boxes have small opaque windows in the side to allow just enough natural light in (B&W cameras do not need any extra light) 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."
"We have just seen our five baby great tits leave the camera nest box that I bought 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 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 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.
