Birdbox camera

This image comes from my garden birdbox.

Temperature inside the box is 13.9 °C, outside is 10.6 °C

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

It is modified to allow extra light in through an opaque window in the side.

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

Video is streamed to the local network and a static image is periodically uploaded to the webserver.

The Raspberry Pi also 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
