Welcome to our live webcam. A state-of-the-art Closed Circuit Television and webcam has been installed at Wat Tyler Country Park in Basildon. The CCTV camera is perched on one of the islands in a shallow lagoon known as the scrape on the neighbouring Pitsea landfill site owned by Veolia Environmental Services (UK) plc. The webcam will be showing different views a lot of the time as the controls for the camera are in our visitor centre at Wat Tyler and it is in constant use.
Ideal for work! Are you sitting at your desk but would rather be birdwatching? Click on the main webcam image to open a remote window that you could leave running in a corner of your desktop while you work. Obviously we are not watching our webcam all day, if you happen to be viewing and see a really good scene that would be worth capturing and one that we could then share with our visitors, please download the image by right-clicking and saving to your own hard disk and then posting it to us at the following address: .
Note that we have a number of cameras that will be feeding images to our webcam. One is trained on a nest box that we are really hoping that peregrines will find attractive and also pans over Canvey Wick another, is placed on the Wat Tyler Scrape and others can return various views of our nest boxes. As visitors to our new RSPB centre at Wat Tyler move and activate these cameras their images will be reflected below. Click here to see the position of our camera on the Wat Tyler scrape.
