Exciting News – Monday 12th April
The Friends are very pleased to announce that our Blue Tit nest box camera live feed is now up and running. There is a lot of activity going on today, probably as it is so cold outside.
If you want to take a look at the inside of a nest box, now is your chance.
The feed will be live 24/7 and will be available on our social media channels too.
We would love to hear your feedback on the live camera feed too.
