This Nestbox Counter is designed to replace the front panel of your Schwegler 1B Nest Box and will allow you to collect data about the use of your box.
The entrance hole contains an electronic counter which logs every time a bird enters or exits the nest box. The counter will also recognise when a bird is poking its head in and out of the box to inspect it and will cleverly count these as part of a single visit, as well as keeping an account of the individual in/out movements. All counts are stored, along with the date and time of the event, on an SD card, allowing you to transfer your data to your computer at your convenience. The data can also be read from the LCD screen on the front of the panel
The counter is powered by two AA batteries.
