It’s time to prepare my Birdbox for spring 2022. The old nest was removed late last year as shown below. What an incredible piece of engineering from the little blue tits!
I really hope the nest is as successful as last year. I’m planning on a few changes this time. I did not realise they needed to build the nest so high to get closer to the light which made them very close to the camera. So this year I will use a fish eye lens so we can see more of the them.
Some nest boxes introduce day light so you can see the birds with a normal camera (ie not infrared). Others introduce artificial light but this needs to be in sync with the daylight and go dark at night time, otherwise they won’t have a natural sleep cycle. I have some plans for this although time is running out before they arrive so we shall see how far I get.
So you don’t miss any of the action, sign up to my news letter to be notified of new blog posts.
Thanks for reading.
