Ellesmere Heronwatch



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.

All photographs are copyright Edward Bevan unless otherwise stated and may not be reproduced without permission.


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!
