In­stalling a ba­sic nest­box cam­era gives an in­ti­mate view in­side the nest and an im­me­di­ate idea of how suc­cess­ful each brood has been. You need to con­nect this type of cam­era to your TV or com­puter by feed­ing the ca­bles through an air­brick or win­dowframe air vent. Some even come com­plete with mi­cro­phones so you can hear what is go­ing on as well. Get­ting in­volved with projects such as the Big Gar­den Bird­watch (www. rspb.org.uk) and the BTO Nest Box Chal­lenge (www. bto.org) means that your ob­ser­va­tions can con­trib­ute to science and help us to understand more about the chang­ing pop­u­la­tions of birds in the UK.
