Bird feeder cam..!

One of my objectives this year is to encourage wild birds into our back garden, not least because some species are becoming somewhat rare in urban areas.

I need to do some work on the provision of food, since the home-made bird feeder we made a couple of years back doesn't seem to be very popular - I've made a couple of minor modifications, but visitors are still scarce.

Despite this, I've set up a little webcam, using the Stickam video streaming service, so I can keep an eye on that little corner of our terrace. I originally chose Stickam because it has an iPhone app, which means I can have it on a little screen on my desk during my workday, but it proved a little unreliable, so I'm now using Ustream, which seems to work OK. I've now set up a 'proper' camera, but the video capture device doesn't update very quickly, so I'm hoping any visitors stick around!

If you'd like to see what's (probably not) going on, you can click here: www.ustream.tv/channel/luton-garden-bird-live-webcam or you can see the video below (if you've got Flash Player... and if it isn't dark!):
