I have been installing CCTV systems for well over 20 years. I starting with property CCTV, installing commercial and personal systems for family and friends. As the cameras got smaller and the image quality got better I soon realised I could get decent quality images from bird boxes, I soon had 2 blue tit boxes and a great tit box rigged up with cameras and lighting, all 3 boxes were used and I had great fun watching these tiny birds getting bigger and stronger day by day, the bad side being when a chick didn't make it, but these things happen. When we install cameras into wildlife situations it brings it into our living rooms and it can be a hard watch sometimes. I also had a swift box installed with 2 cameras inside as well as a waterproof speaker to attract the swifts, this worked and the swifts were in the box within a few days and I can proudly say they used the box and had 2 chicks every summer for several years. When we started up the Cromer Peregrine Project we wanted a camera system to monitor the box from the ground, this was probably the toughest system I had installed because of the distance and weather conditions involved but it worked wonderfully. The following year I took on my biggest challenge and overhauled the whole system at Cromer. Click on the box below to find out more about the new set up.
