The Starling Nest Box

Our Starling nest box 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 starling box design follows guidelines suggested by the RSPB. The nestbox hole is 45mm, 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 starling 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 

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 and camera have 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 30 ft away, extensions available if required.  

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

Starling Facts

Smaller than blackbirds, with a short tail, pointed head, triangular wings, starlings look black at a distance but when seen closer they are very glossy with a sheen of purples and greens. Their flight is fast and direct and they walk and run confidently on the ground. Noisy and gregarious, starlings spend a lot of the year in flocks. Still one of the commonest of garden birds.

Conspicuous and widespread in the UK, they are seen everywhere except for the highest parts of the Scottish Highlands. They are most abundant in southern England and are more thinly distributed in upland areas with moorland. Still one of the UK's commonest garden birds. Huge roosts are found in plantations, reed beds and city centres.

Starlings can be seen all year round. Large numbers arrive in the autumn to spend the winter here. Their diet is mainly Insects and fruit.
