£63 covers the cost of buying and placing a miniature temperature logger in the bottom of the nest; it can be recovered if the nest is disturbed to inform the likely cause of damage.
£154 buys the scientific time to monitor a hen on her nest, at least every four days, to check if she is successful in producing any chicks, or if the eggs have been stolen and to recover the temperature logger data.
£592 will buy a remote camera to watch a hen sitting on her eggs 24hrs a day, so that we know exactly what happens. These have to be sighted extremely carefully to avoid betraying the nest’s location.
£1,186 covers the cost of buying a remote camera and contributes to the scientific time required to monitor a lapwing sitting on her nest during the vital breeding season.
