Bird camera




This clever device will help you keep an eye on feathered friends


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
