We have been making Bird Box Camera Systems for well over 10 years now, having sold our first system in 2002. During that time we have constantly evolved and developed our systems incorporating the latest electronics to give the best viewing experience, while ensuring the the nesting environment of the birds is never compromised.

The bird box is made from cedar with either a wired or wireless camera installed in the roof looking down at the nesting area and produces a live video and audio feed of what is happening in the bird box. The system includes all the necessary cables and transformers to connect the system to a TV or video recorder. Pictures can also be viewed on a computer using a suitable AV capture device.

The cameras are low light cameras and use infrared light to see in total darkness. The infrared light is invisible to the naked eye, harmless to the birds and does not disrupt their natural day-night, light-dark cycles. It avoids the need to put artificial light into the bird box which will disturb the birds.

Cedar is our preferred wood for bird boxes as it is an excellent thermal insulator, long lasting and naturally weather resistant without the need for preservatives. Cedar has an attractive appearance and will weather naturally needing little maintenance other than cleaning the bird box after each nesting season.

All the bird boxes are safe and non-toxic. No stains, preservatives or wood treatments are used. Our bird boxes are designed not only to attract many different species for nesting, but to offer shelter and protection during winter as well.

The bird boxes are built to RSPB and BTO specifications with floors specially cornered to provide drainage should any water get inside. The sides are vented at the top to provide air circulation and one side is hinged for easy cleaning and monitoring. The bird box is screwed together with galvanised screws for extra strength, durability and a quality finish. No nails, no pins, no glue.

The bird boxes are available with four different sizes of entrance hole to attract several different species of birds:

  • 25mm (1 inch) hole to attract: Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Tree-creeper and very small birds.
  • 28mm (1 1/8 inches) hole to attract: Tree Sparrows, Great Tit, Crested Tit and Blue Tit.
  • 32mm (1 1/4 inch) hole to attract: Tree Sparrow, Great Tit, Crested Tit, Nuthatch and Pied Flycatcher.
  • 38mm (1 1/2 inch) hole to attract: Redstarts and larger birds
The bird box is 30cm (12 inches) high (43cm (17inches) including fixing batten), 17cm (6 3/4 inches) wide and 13cm (5 inches) deep and made from 20mm (3/4 inch) thick fresh untreated cedar. The bird box is screwed together with galvanised screws for extra strength, durability and a quality finish.
