Great Tits Live Stream

Great tits are of real benefit to city gardens and parks, as they collect hundreds of caterpillars each day to feed their growing chicks. Caterpillars that would otherwise be munching garden plants and vegetables.

In 2016, the Department of Forestry established a great tit nest box project and have errected thousands of nest boxes for biologic control of pine processionary moth; great tits are thought to eat their caterpillars. With their support KUŞKOR are placing nest boxes in parks, schools, gardens as well as forested areas.

Each spring you can see inside an active great tit nest box through our webcam.
