Sitting Room Nest Box

This novel nest box has been decorated internally with doll's house furniture to give it the appearance of a human sitting room!

I built this nest box to house a small Hikvision dome camera. I used 1/12 doll's house furniture and wallpaper to dress the interior to create a novel scene in which the birds could nest. All the materials used are glued securely and out of the nesting space. The birds are not concerned by these adornments and blue tits have been prospecting the box in the same way that they prospect all my other boxes.

 

There is a reason behind a box like this. My work in schools and my desire to engage audiences who may not usually watch live camera streams, means that something unusual like this can pull people in to watch. I can use it as a platform to teach them all about the wonders ofthe wildife right on our doorstep. 

Although the blue tits started building here, they did not complete the nest.
