Birdbox camera

This image comes from my garden birdbox.

Temperature inside the box is 22.1 °C, outside is 16.9 °C

The box is designed for bluetits and is based on an RSPB design.

There is also a waterproof enclosure housing a Raspberry Pi Zero.

The Raspberry Pi performs the birdbox termperature measurements using DS18B20 sensors on its 1-wire interface

Measurements are sent to the weatherstation computer using a custom MQTT publisher for WeeWx to process

Video is streamed to the local network and a static image is periodically uploaded to the webserver using an Axis 291 video server.

Live webcams (only on local network)
