From the start of 2017 Barbara and I have had a bird nesting box,
fitted with a camera. It inspired me to also get a trail camera to capture
feeding activity at our feeding station. I subsequently trained an IP
security camera on the exterior of the nest box to capture the moment the
chicks fledged. Then I turned the trail camera onto our bird bath.
For 2018 we have an additional 4 Mp IP camera fitted nest box, the original nest box and the Trail camera is back on the feeding station.
Since I started recording the activity in our garden, there were 26
different species captured on film in 2017, this does not include cats!
New for 2018 I captured Brambling visiting our feeding station, I also saw a Firecrest feeding but it didn't trigger the camera so you'll have to take my word for it.
