This is a camera ready nest box. It does not include a camera but has appropriate fittings to house one of our bird box camera kits.
The Nesting Box
The nesting box has been designed for the camera to be mounted at the top of the sloping side wall. This means that mess and nesting material at the bottom of the box is kept away from the camera. All the connections, including cabling and camera connections, are mounted behind an opaque plastic panel. Even though the camera is covered, the lens discreetly protrudes to catch all those important moments.
This makes the nest box suitable for a range of garden birds, including:
- House sparrows
- Coal tits
- Great tits
- Marsh tits
- Blue tits
This popular design offers you an insight into the secret lives of nesting birds

The box and camera were easy to set up, plugged, via the supplied PoE adaptor, into an eight-way switch, which connects into the router.
Downloaded the iSpy app for Windows and, after a bit of faffing about, had the bird box live on screen. Lots of settings that I still have to work through, definitely not for non-techies.
Subscribed to iSpy online in order to stream live video (£54/year), and that is where it all got way too technical, even for someone who is pretty comfortable with IT. I now need my son-in-law, an IT specialist/professional. to come and set this up so that friends/family can access live video online without me having the iSpy running on my laptop, which is currently acting as a server.
This is why the system loses a star, and it is no use some tech head telling me 'it's simple really', because it isn't.
Running it through your router to watch on a device on your network is excellent; but streaming live to others requires some technical expertise, says the old man with 25 years computer experience and 14 years running e-commerce websites.
Hopefully, it will be ready for Springwatch.
Adds an unusual dimension to camera footage. Well made sturdy bird box. Blue tits investigated straight away.
