Nesting Box Camera - 2001
I have mounted (with the grateful assistance of colleagues at work) a small Black and White Camera into the top of a Blue Tit nesting box.

All the birds have finally flown the nest, sadly however, it has revealed two dead chicks in the bottom of the nesting box. I will give it a couple of days and remove them, and see if the boxed is used again in the summer.

I have removed the dead chicks from the nesting box, now watching to see if the tits decide to raise a second brood, the RSPB have told me that this sometimes this does happen in the North and East - We will wait and see. The original family still are using the garden, we spotted 8 of them sitting on, or around the peanut feeder today.
The camera still has a bit of a fault which causes the occasional odd pictures to be uploaded, I will put a timer on the camera so it is off during the hours of darkness, hopefully that will keep it working a little longer. Plans already in hand for the colour camera next year
I will still put saved interesting pictures here just in case!
