Ask Andy: How To Set Up A Camera In A Bird Nesting Box

Andy from the technical support team here at SpyCameraCCTV talks through common questions we hear from our customers. This week looks at setting up a small camera in a bird nesting box so you can keep an eye on your feathery neighbours, watch them build a nest, lay eggs and raise a clutch of chicks.

If you’re looking for a bit more information on how to site your nesting box to encourage different types of birds to become lodgers then check out this blog post: which includes tips from Andy and also a wildlife enthusiast, Richard, who has lots of experience with nesting boxes.

Bird boxes are a great way to support your local wildlife as many of our bird populations are dying out from cold weather and the expanding urban areas destroying their natural habitat. Offering your local birds a safe haven from the cold and having feeders in your garden will help them survive.

Our bird box cameras are extremely popular so we gets lots of questions about them. If you have any questions then you can write to us by commenting on this post, email us or call us on 0117 325 2470.
