Happy New Year everyone.

Just putting the finishing touches to this years nest boxes.

I'll have three boxes all with TVL700 cameras, lighting and hopefully audio once I've sorted that bit.

Two 25mm hole boxes for Blue Tits, first one with one o/h camera, the second with o/h and side cameras, fully wallpaperd and decorated to taste.

The 3rd box with have a 32mm hole with an o/h camera and we are hoping for Sparrows or Starlings.

I'll post some pictures once they are completed and in situ.

All sounds great Joe, All my boxes are getting day time visits at the moment. Nice to see the activity already starting!

Looking forward to seeing your set ups! P.s if your trying to attract starling you'll need a box with hole of between 45mm / 50mm. 32mm is fine for sparrows / great tits though.

Good luck and happy new year.

Cheers Paul and same to you.

We have quite a few sparrows, so they will be welcome.
We've had a little interest in one box almost as soon as it went up, but I'm thinking that may have been last year's parents who used the box.

Fingers crossed as usual and looking for some overnight stays if the cold bites.

Here's a picture of the inside of the main box from the horizontal camera.
Painting and decorating is nearly finished, the window is open for the birds to come and go, and then I will put it all together once it's been thoroughly tested. Rolling Eyes

Haha brilliant!
Love what you've done with the inside of the box.
I have finally took the leap and ordered a starling box, Should have it up and running by middle of January.

I just checked the box entrance and it is 45mm, so maybe OK.

I tried to upload some pictures but they are all coming out in landscape, anyone know how to overcome this please? I tried rotating them on the PC but it still happens. Like this...

45mm will be perfect for Starlings.
