I build a nesting chamber for a new live stream cam

With so many mice, voles and shrews in the garden, it got me thinking about where they are all breeding. Reading up on it, I found out that all these species have numerous litters per year in underground chambers. Wouldn’t it be great if I could get a breeding female on cam and be able to watch her bring up her litter? I know it is too late for this year, but I thought that if I got it all set up now, then next spring maybe there is a chance something would use the chamber to breed in. They may well use it during the winter to sleep in.

Armed with a variety of bits and pieces and a spare B&W cam with IR, I set about creating a nesting chamber.

Full details on how I made it can be seen on my website HERE
