For the third year,
I've set up a surplus infrared security camera as a webcam inside the bird nesting box.
I'm using the bird box I extended last year to accomodate the camera's focal length, and this year I've given it a squirt of spider repellant in an attempt to prevent spiders making cobwebs across the lens again.
I notice the picture is getting a bit wobbly, so three years of hard use may be starting to tell on the equipment. If it packs up this season, I may yet deviate from my bodger principles and succumb to the easy charms of a ready-made bird-cam.
For now, on with the show. And apologies again to anybody mislead by the name 'titcam'.
