We originally started CamNest because it was
impossible to buy a system that provided a reasonable quality
picture for a reasonable price but now you can get the whole system
(with a not too good camera) from some supermarkets for under £40
and a reasonable quality system for around £90.
Our reason for
doing it all has gone and we now have a different focus ourselves. A
few years ago we grabbed an opportunity to buy a large house in the
mountains in the south of France to live there and run 2 gîtes
(holiday rentals) see http://www.casteldecantobre.co.uk/
if you are interested.
For the birds around us here in France
have a look at here
unfortunately the local vultures are too big for our bird
Best wishes, happy bird watching, and thank you for
your support over the last 9 years.
We recommend you use Nature Cameras.co.uk for nest box camera systems and accessories.

This website also links to bird boxes that used to
be in our garden (see the "Diary" entries on the left). Our first
nesting box was built and installed in January 2005 to watch Blue
tits nesting. See Peggy's 2005, 2006 and 2009 diary pages for
details of nesting activities.
If you are interested in vultures (yes, vultures!), they regularly
fly over our French
Gîte. Click on the green looking link on the left.

showing a robin building a nest in less than a day. We were
amazed at the speed she built it, but will her mate like it?

pair of blue tits inspecting one of our customers' nesting
boxes in Scotland. To see more videos and read Shirl's Garden
