Camera specifications Distance chart

Camera viewing distance

The cameras are designed for nest box/ bird box use, focusing from 5cm to infinity, allowing you to it for many applications. The diagram to the right gives you a guide to approximately how much of your nest box will be in view when you fix your camera at different distances. For example if you fit the camera 30cm above the floor of the box you would get an approximate area of 27 cm by 20 cm in view. You will be able to focus the lens by undoing a little grub screw under the lens and turning the lens (Black part) anti clockwise..

Having the correct IR levels are also important. This camera is ideally suited for handykam nest boxes and there is the correct balance between natural light during the day and correct focal distance between camera and base.

The camera and bird box have been in development for over 2 years and will help you get the most of viewing and enjoying your vi sting birds.

Our CCD and CMOS cameras are specifically modified for nest box use. Either camera is excellent for nest boxes. Still not sure which one to get please read our guide or call us?

How wired camera works
How wireless camera bird box works

How does it work?

The wired system is very easy to use and install. The kit comes with everything you will need including instructions. All you have to do is:

  • Test everything before installation
  • Install the bird box 20m (66ft away). Extensions can be bought.
  • Connect cable to camera
  • Run cable through hole in wall/duct to TV etc
  • Connect other end to TV and power supply
  • You are now ready to enjoy your birds

Please note - remember the power to the camera
The wireless camera still needs power operate. It does come with a square 9v battery, but this only last 8 hrs. The best solution is to go 'semi-wireless', where you should mount the box near a power point like a garden or garage shed wall and connect the camera to the power point. The video and audio signal is then sent wirelessly to the receiver. See diagram below.

Never too late for a nestbox
Never to late for a nestbox kit

Put your nestbox up any time

Different birds nest at different times, often having multiple clutches throughout the season.

They also use nest boxes to hide in, shelter and roost in. Some take a while to get used to a new home.

It's never too late or the “wrong time” to put up a nestbox.

2008 footage...

Here is actual footage from one of our nestboxes situated above our workshop. A pair of Blue tits moved in, laid five eggs. We managed to see it all.

This footage was taken from our standard camera in one of our cedar boxes. The camera is able to capture the night and day footage of the birds.

With technology, we can now enjoy the hidden delights of nest building, egg laying, feeding, growing, communicating, fledging and so much more.

Once you start watching, it will become addictive and probably better than watch normal TV.

Please note that the footage has been compressed for the web. Actual footage will be bigger, slightly smoother with better sound.



Following the success of Springwatch this year and and to say a big thank you to our customers, we thought we would add a FREE upgrade to our existing offer.

We have upgraded the plastic hole sizers/protectors to three designer brushed stainless steel versions. These quality made items will help you select what type of bird you would like in the box as well as protect the box from predators like woodpeckers, squirrels etc.

Fit one one of hole sizers with the anti rust brass panel pins provided. Your birds will now be safe and secure in their new home.
