Blue Tit Nest Box Cam

This nest box is mounted on an Oak tree in my garden. It has had blue tits nesting in it for the many years. This is a specially designed nest box, with tiny lights inside which come on in the day and go off at night. There is a Hikvision mini dome camera mounted into the the box, at a slight angle, to give a more intimate view of the occupants.
