The Woodpecker Nest Box

Our nest box for woodpeckers offers market leading quality, durability and great value for money. Handmade in our UK workshops from high grade 21mm PEFC Western Red Cedar (responsibly sourced) this woodpecker box design follows guidelines suggested by the RSPB. The nestbox hole is 45mm which has only been partly drilled, there are 4 drain holes in the bird box floor. The front and top panels are screwed for ease of cleaning out which is recommended to be in the months of September and October. A quick release mounting bracket holds the camera in the optimum position, this also allows for ease of camera transfer between other gardenature nest boxes and viewcam feeder products if required. This woodpecker bird box with camera offers you a top down view of the nesting chamber, so you will be right there in the nest getting to know the chicks!

The Camera

This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera nest boxes and feeder camera kits. This truly outstanding bird box camera uses an intelligent Sony Effio DSP Chip which operates with a Super Light Sensor to cleverly adjust the image quality to suit its environment. Not only this, the light sensor also serves to adjust the x10 infrared night vision LEDs to a graduating on/off, gently supplementing loss or gain of natural light levels with an invisible IR. The result of this outstanding technology is that we can now produce ultra high resolution colour images in full light of day and sharp black and white images at night or low light level conditions. This mini nest box camera also incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The camera has a 3.6mm lens which produces a 92 degree viewing angle, the perfect setup for a nest box. The lens will have already been pre-focused to the correct position for you, but it can very easily be adjusted to suit alternative applications.

The Wireless Digital System 

The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of the latest technology, the signal is digitally encrypted and much more powerful than cheaper analogue systems which are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these devices will automatically pair and channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. This particular model is capable of transmitting over 120 metres line of sight. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m and upto 1km line of sight.
This Gardenature Digital Wireless Transmitter and Receiver kit is entirely weatherproof and very simple to install. Each unit has approximately 1.5 meters of cable which has (RCA) Audio, Video and 12v DC inputs. The transmitter also comes with a 10 meter mains cable making it ideal for outdoor and indoor camera applications where the mains plug can be upto 30ft away from the camera. 

Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or Yellow & White A/V inputs. There is a 240v 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall.

Outside: The transmitter (and all gardenature cameras) require 12v DC power, so for a wireless kit to operate a 10 meter DC cable is supplied for connection to a mains point outdoors, ideally located inside a shed or garage for example. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual camera can be upto 10 metres, extensions available if required.  The 10m cable terminates at the transmitter with two (splitter) 12v outputs, one for the camera and one for the transmitter, this eliminates the need for a separate mains supply for the camera. There is an RCA Video (yellow) and Audio (white) which connect to the camera for signal transmission.

All gardenature camera kits arrive ready assembled, so they really are just `plug and play' easy to install

Woodpecker Facts  - BTO

Great Spotted Woodpeckers are about the same size as Starlings. They are common birds of parkland and woodland but often feed in gardens. Great Spotted Woodpecker juveniles have red foreheads that are replaced by black as they moult in the autumn. Adult males then have a red nape but females have no red on their head at all and all these differences in plumage are easy to see.
Although attractive, Great Spotted Woodpeckers can make themselves unpopular by drilling holes in nest boxes and eating young birds. To get them to use nest boxes you need to put a lump of soft wood inside, so that they can hollow out the nest cavity for themselves. The male sits on the nest at night and a female may well use a near-by nest box to roost in.
