Bird Box's and Nature Cams


I current have just one Blue Tit box fitted with a camera. You can click on the link below to access the live image and recorded images.
The software used is iCatcher Console 4 from iCode Systems ltd. Primarily intended for CCTV applications, iCatcher is excellent for capturing wildlife. The software is configured to only record when motion is detected. This shows up along the bottom of the playback window in the form of a time-line, clearly showing when there was activity. It can also be configured to generate an email and attach the first few frames of the recording. The software supports remote viewing including Smart Phones.

Live Stream from Blue Tit box

Bird Box's are constructed with a small, opaque window in the roof. This lets some natural light into the box during daylight hours and allows the camera to operate in colour. During the hours of darkness, the camera switches to infrared and is fitted with infrared LED's which provide illumination, however, to the naked eye (and the bird inside), the box appears completely dark.
