Children were gripped by the activities of two blue tits which nested in the box in May. We used infrared light so the birds were not disturbed. A TV screen was linked to the camera (pictured below) and I distributed videos around the classrooms.
Pupils collected data to use in maths, English and science lessons.
They also kept a log of what materials were used to make the nest, how it was made and how much time the birds spent in it. Visit www.seeinsidebox.co.uk which has a section for teachers to swap ideas.
