Apple Tree Nest Box

This nest box is mounted in a small apple tree in my garden. I am trialling a Birdsy cam mounted in the roof space.

This nest box is from Green Feathers. It is a larger than average box, giving me the height I needed to mounted a Birdsy camera in the roof space. I am working with Birdsy on the development of a wildlife camera suitable for use in gardens to monitor wildlife. We have not used the camera in a nest box before, so this is rather experimental. This is a new location for a box in the garden as well. Both blue tits and great tits showed an interest within days of it being installed. Great tits are now raising 6 chicks in there.
