Today I rigged up an external camera to view the birds from outside the nest box and that's why there are now two images on the live video stream. Unfortunately I won't be able to leave it out overnight or in bad weather as I haven't managed to protect the power supply from getting wet safely enough for my liking. I'll probably put some recordings on the left side when the live camera is not available.
We did ponder taking the sparrow to the vet but in the end didn't think they'd have much time for it. Anyway, after a couple of hours we went back to the box and it had gone - as the cats had been confined to the house duriong this time, we'd like to think it flew off by itself having recovered from its ordeal.
It's going to be really hard ensuring that the cats don't catch our fledgling Blue Tits.
