For the second year running, CJ Wildlife is live streaming nest box cameras from nine species on their website 24/7 to give you a bird’s eye view of what goes on inside a nest box during the breeding season.
The live webcams run 24 hours a day and let us take a very up close and personal look into the nests of Peregrine Falcons, Little Owls, Tawny Owls, Barn Owls, Storks, Herons, Swifts and Kingfishers.
Last year’s nest box cameras proved particularly popular with parents and teachers. Children are captivated by nature and the nest box cameras quite literally bring the nesting season to life in the classroom and allow us to follow the stories of the nesting birds, giving children a front row seat to the world hidden within the nest box.
Log on to the CJ Wildlife website to catch all the action where you will see chicks preparing to fledge, eggs waiting to hatch and new parent birds preparing their nests.
Each webcam page also offers video highlights from throughout the breeding season, so even if you miss the action live, you and your children can go back and observe the various stages of preparing the nest and raising the young.
To watch the webcams, visit www.birdfood.co.uk/webcams
You can also follow CJ Wildlife on Twitter @CjWildlife and Facebook to keep you up to date with all the latest news from the nests.
