Thanks to a Big Lottery Awards 4 All grant, supplemented with other grants and donations, we have been able to buy small CCTV video cameras and associated equipment.  These have been installed in the tree tops on Moscow Island (see below).

 

And 2020 is the 30th anniversary since we first started watching the herons!

Our new cameras are small HD video cameras with infra-red lights for night viewing.

There are 10 cameras installed on nests high in the trees on Moscow Island.

The cameras were positioned in the trees by the experts from Tree Dynamics.

These photos give some idea of just how high the nests are so 'thank you' to the brave lads, Paul and Steve!

The installation of the cables and computer wizardry was done by Aaction Electronics, so thanks go to Ron and Paul for their part in the project (the photo shows Ron hard at work)

 

All we need now are some herons to move in!
