We have a number of wildlife cameras set up around Gribin Isaf. As well as being able to watch birds, hedgehogs and other independent creatures we can see the behaviour of our own livestock.

It all started with our nestbox camera which we bought quite a few years ago

Despite frequent relocations to find an acceptable setting, the bird population has stubbornly refused to make use of it. We have many normal boxes around the site which are filled every year – but not this one.

And then at last this year a Bluetit decided to move in
