Many bird species are in decline, not jut native ones either. The numbers of migratory birds are dwindling too for a whole host of reason from climate change to over development. House martins and swallows in particular are becoming rarer to our shores but providing a safe nest like a swallow or house martin bowls may help encourage them back.
One of the greatest challenges in nature and particularly bird photography is collecting images of hatchlings as they grow to adulthood. Documenting the incredible stories of baby birds in a with a nesting box camera as the parents look them after until they can fly the nest can be exhilarating and bring a genuine tear to the eye.
However, as more and more people get interested in nature photography ╦╬ainly because of the surge in use of digital cameras means its worth stipulating the danger this type of bird watching can pose to wildlife.
Nesting birds are notoriously nervous. Not only is it all to easy to scare a mother away from her eggs or chicks, some species may cannibalise their young once disturbed. So in attempting any type of this photography it is important to ensure the nesting birds are never disturbed.
By far the best method is to use a camera-nesting box. These are similar to conventional nesting boxes but have a ┴ďecret hidden camera compartment, normally tucked away in the roof of the bird box.
There are a large selection of feeders and wildlife houses in our range. From house martin and swallow nesting bowls and other bird boxes; houses for frogs and toads houses bat boxes, hedgehogs homes, bumblebee nesting nesters; to numerous bird feeders and tables, there is much we can do to lend a hand to our beloved birds.
And you don├Ň need a huge back garden either Many bird feeders and wildlife boxes can be used on lawns, flowerbeds, window boxes, planter and even patios. Some are really fantastic looking too and can help brighten the dullest garden.
