Affinity Water has agreed to provide, and is now doing so, power to our receiver in Kingfisher hide. Both the fixed and pan tilt zoom cameras are working. Unfortunately, the bad weather/high winds at the start of May seems to have destroyed the nest in front of the fixed camera. 

Our new offshore heron nest cameras have thrown up some stunning new images and video clips captured on Saturday March 23rd. Read more to see the pictures and to pick up a link to the video footage.

March 2019

Last year our herons decided in their wisdom to breed away from either of our two new cameras. However hopes are high that this season we may be luckier. Last year both cameras were static but over the winter we have upgraded one to a tilt and zoom type. It is rotatable through 360 degrees, zoomable and it can focus on a variety of nests including several currently with sitting herons.
