Gardenature bird box and feeder cameras are easy to set up and can provide hours of educational fun for all age groups.
The Nest Box
Our multi-species nest box offers market leading quality and value for money. This birdbox has been hand crafted from high grade Western Red Cedar (sourced from well managed forests) and follows guidelines suggested by the RSPB and BTO (British Trust for Ornithology). This particular nest box has a removable front centre panel that has a pre-drilled 32mm entrance hole and includes hole reduction / protection plates 28 & 32mm, making it suitable for the widest range of garden birds:
- Blue Tits
- Coal Tits
- Marsh Tits
- Great Tits
- House Sparrows
- Robins (centre hole panel removed)
This camera bird box has been designed with a small sliding drawer in the apex of the birdbox roof which safely houses the camera and its connections, only the lens protrudes into the bird nesting chamber.
A quick release mounting bracket holds the camera in the optimum position, this also provides for an easy transfer of the camera between the gardenature nest box and bird feeder viewcam housing.
The Feeder ViewCam
The camera is already installed in the bird box for you, but if it's no longer the breeding season you can easily transfer the camera to the ViewCam Feeder housing. Hang a bird feeder (supplied) on the hook in front of the camera and watch birds feeding really close up. Have fun discovering what species like which foods and what time of the day they visit.
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 Rest of the System
A professional x3 core cable (Audio/Video/12vDC) is already connected to the camera in the roof of the nest box, the other end of the cable needs to be routed into your property. The cable plugs are black, yellow and white. The black is for mains power and connects to the (supplied)12V DC power adaptor / plug. The remaining RCA yellow (video) and white (audio) connectors can either plug into a spare AV/AUX socket on your TV, / DVD recorder, or a spare TV scart input using the (supplied) scart adaptor. Switch on at the mains plug, then select the appropriate AV channel on your TV, sit back and wait for the show to start! All very easy but if you need any help we are just a phone call away.
