The Bird Box

This multi-species garden bird box offers you a top down camera view of both the nesting chamber and the nest box hole, a really popular box for capturing all of the action. Handmade in our UK workshops using only the highest grade PEFC certified Western Red Cedar (responsibly sourced) this bird box is good quality, durable and great value. This cedar nest box does not require any preservative treatment as the natural oils within the wood will protect it against the weather conditions, but if you wish to paint the nesting box please use a water based solution. The roof fits into a slot in the rear panel preventing rain from entering the nesting chamber, this is easily removed via two screws allowing access to the camera. For ease of cleaning out at the end of the breeding season the complete front section of the nestbox can be removed. This garden nest box box incorporates a removable front center panel which has been pre-drilled with a 32mm entrance hole. Also included are optional hole reduction / protection plates 28 & 32mm, making this nest box suitable for the widest range of garden birds:

  • Blue Tits
  • Coal Tits
  • Marsh Tits
  • Great Tits
  • House Sparrows
  • Robins & Wrens (center hole panel removed) 

 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.  

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 at what time of the day they visit. 

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 

This Gardenature Digital Wireless Transmitter and Receiver kit has been manufactured with the aim of being very simple to install, so it really is 'plug and play'.


The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of a professional CCTV quality, it uses digitally encrypted technology which is much more powerful than some cheaper systems that only cover short distances and are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital wireless is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these paired devices will automatically channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. Our digital transmitters are capable of sending a clear AV signal over 120 metres 'line of sight'. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m 'line of sight'.

What is line of sight ? This is the measured distance achievable when there are no obstructions between the TX and RX. A standard house wall can reduce the transmission distance by upto 30 meters.

So what goes where ? Although the audio & video transmission is wireless from the TX transmitter to the RX receiver, there is a need for some cable connections to the camera and for power. 

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

Outside: The AV transmitter has a 10 meter DC power cable which should be run to the the nearest mains power supply, ideally located in a shed or garage etc. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual nest box camera can be upto 30ft away, extensions available if required.
