    Gotta admit it's an interesting watch that. I'd love to do something like this. Chatting to the neighbours and friends I mention the titcam on here to them and they've all said they'd like to do the same. Funny how it appeals to so many.

    I love the male (if my life experience is anything to go by) getting the boot at 1.09 and the Rook getting it's claws and beak in right after is very interesting.

    Definitely gonna get a decent set up sorted for next year for myself.

      Looks like three or four were born but only two fledged? Not an unexpected survival rate I guess.

        Pretty mad viewing stats! I got about 12 views for my live stream this year, so I didn't bother to monetise in the end.
        Anything longer than 12 hours of live streaming and Youtube doesn't keep it, but I did manage to grab a few snippets - here's one of the chicks fledging:



        Definitely a lot of fun tho, even if I ended up more interested in it than the kids. Just a simple raspberry pi setup which you can put together for about £40 (less than £20 if you use a pi zero and a knock off Chinesium camera). Top tips: use LED lights (pi driven 5v strip works well with a mosfet to switch and using daylight hours on/off), and don't bother with IR because they don't do much at night and gives crappy colours in the day (unless you get switchable IR filter, but that is getting more complicated).

          Next time put a proper linky up (that I don't have to hunt for on this forum)...

          I know people who spend hours watching birds, zoo animals and traffic cameras.

            Maybe next season we can have a sticky for everyone to add links to camera feeds, etc?

                  A sticky tit cam? What's not to like?
