London - Do you love watching the visitors to your birdtable but wish you could get a bit moreup close and personal?

Now you can with an ingenious device called the Bird Photo Booth.

It looks like a conventional bird feeder, but contains a hidden video camera that captures close-up footage of birds as they arrive to feed.

The footage can then be transmitted back to a laptop, iPhone or iPad using a wireless connection. You can even watch the woodpecker at the end of your garden while you are sitting on the train.

Inventor Bryson Lovett, 28, from California, says: “It’s a great chance to see birds acting naturally because they won’t be aware of anyone being close by.”

It costs £100 from - Daily Mail
