Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I choose between different types of camera nestboxes on the market?

A: There is now quite a wide choice of products available in the UK for watching birds nest so here are a few of the main features and differences:

1/ Webcam systems offer great colour and you can watch live or record what is happening when you are not around.† Webcam systems do not need any external power source but do have to be connected to the computer via a cable.† You cannot use them at night without having lights on in the nestbox but, of course, there is nothing to watch after birds have roosted in the evening anyway!

2/ CCTV systems can be watched on TV live but only recorded via a DVD recorder or similar, you can get them with very long cables which is good for larger gardens!† The colour is more muted but you can watch at night in black and white via IR lens - great for watching owls, hedgehogs, bats....

3/ Wireless CCTV (beware dodgy cheap ones) ature black and white night vision but have less bright colours in all conditions. Wireless systems have to be kept away from other electronic devices which may interfere with the signal.† They need a power source for the camera itself such as garden socket or battery pack and the latter can be expensive as they use a lot of power. ††

Q: I am buying this as a gift - if the recipient doesn't want it/doesn't have a computer/cannot use it/ will he be able to return it after Xmas?

A: We know that a lot of our systems are purchased as gifts and we allow 60 days for returns to accommodate this - we would probably even oblige at a later date if it was a reasonable request.

Q: If I buy this gift wrapped how will it be posted:

A: We wrap the box in red or gold foil.† We then hand write and attach any message required to your gift and cover in brown kraft paper ready for posting 1st class or Airmail to the address supplied.††

Q: How quickly can I get my item from your company?

A: We have all the webcamera birdboxes listed here ready to post to you and always despatch same or next working day so expect to receive your order within 3 days of purchase if in UK, within 1 week if in EU country.† Please contact us immediately if not received within a reasonable time.

We don't offer tracked deliveries as this is very expensive for the customer and doesn't seem to get items there any more reliably or faster.† So far the postman has delivered 99.9% of our mail on time and to the right address but if you want a signed for service then please message us in advance of purchase so we can arrange it for you.†

Q: Can I use this system on my TV or only on a computer?

A:† We have developed this system specifically for use on a pc as this allows you to watch in real time and also to record the output, edit it†on your†computer or share them on u-tube or even stream live from your pc to other users via messenger services.† To view the output on a TV you would need to record it and then save to a DVD, ie you cannot watch it live on screen†- so if that is your preference we suggest a CCTV type system is probably more appropriate to your needs.

Q: How near must my pc be to the birdbox to use this?

A: Our birdbox cameras have a variable amount of usb2 cable attached to the webcam and some come with additional 5m extension cables to give you between 21ft/6.5m and 39ft/12m.†
With the basic shortlead webcamera system you will need to include an extension with an active repeater to boost the signal from the pc if you want a distance greater than the 6.5 metres supplied.
With the 10m webcamera system (which already contains one active repeater unit on the camera lead) you can power the camera for a further 5m using an ordinary usb2 extension cable - for distances greater than this (total 15m) you will, again, need to include a good quality repeater to boost the signal.††

    About Birdboxview

    Birdboxview (Rachel & Keith) started making webcamera birdboxes in 2010 for our own use as we are totally enthralled by watching the wildlife around us in Cornwall and wanted an affordable, recordable system.†
    We began sellling the unique, fun webcam boxes on Amazon and on our own dedicated website in the summer of 2011.
    Since then we have made several improvements to the webcam birdbox design and continue to develop our idea whilst supporting its use via our website, emails and many wonderful conversations with our customers!
    Please feel free to†message us†to discuss whether our product is suitable for your particular requirements.†
    Many thanks for reading and enjoy your birdwatching!
