Want to know what birds and wildlife get up to in your garden when you are not around? A new motion-activated camera from the RSPB means you really can watch the birdies. A bit like an avian version of Big Brother, this weather-resistant piece of kit will deliver round-the-clock video clips that you can watch on your TV or computer. Or you can print off crisp hi-resolution images using the USB cable supplied. Simply place on the ground or fix to a tree trunk and wait for the show to begin. There is a smart sensor that ignores feeders when they move in the wind, and a time-lapse setting and powerful flash to capture any night-time action.
The Birdcam 2.0 remote motion-activated wildlife camera costs £179.99 from the RSPB. www.shopping.rspb.org.uk or call (08451) 200501
