I have very nearly finished the Yew View Tawny box now. It now has two internal cameras and, last week, Dave and I moved the external camera , as it was still in the same position as it had been for the previous box. I needed the camera a little further away to accommodate the larger decking area. The standing platform Dave built me, under the box, paid dividends again as it was much easier to move the camera to the other side, giving me more scope to set it up to show the whole platform. The temporary roof is still in place as vile rainy weather made it too dangerous to go up and put the new one on, so excuse the poor felting on this temporary structure!
This week, I was keen to see if the owls had visited again and to check I had the positioning and the focus right on the exterior of the box. In fact, the owls did not actually go inside the box this week, but they visited regularly, often just sitting on the platform or looking in and calling. I am pleased with this new set up and the image I am getting. The owls seem to really like this new set-up and the branches I screwed on the edges… perfect for perching!
