No I'm not a twitcher ( did you see the crowds going after the WC Sparrow, made me cringe, couldnt do that and I've been birding most of my life, leave it guys, go and see them in the States, it's more fun ) but yes it's fun seeing stuff on the telly, frustrates me when you see a shot of flamingos on the salt pans in Africa and there are loads of waders amongst them but you never get a decent view, forget the flamingos, see them so many times, lets see the good stuff!!!

Anyway I'm off for a beer, with my Raccoon Dog telly-tick!

... back to technical:
1. Lights
We use two lamps positsioned as i described earlier, they have usual halogen outdoor housing: http://www.acg.cc/productsimg/1169100452230.jpg
and bulbs: http://english.alter.ee/?vars=page|s...oduct|9|LAX403

2. Capturing device
MX-M22M-Sec. So it should be the same camera as last time by the Storks nest. But changed is censor. Mobotix also have pressrelease about the subject: http://www.mobotix.com/other/company...t_news#ID17472

Hi David

[QUOTE=David Watkins;820112]No I'm not a twitcher ( did you see the crowds going after the WC Sparrow,

My husband said this evening, "If the WC sparrow is still there we'll have to go and see it" - oh dear, if it's there I won't have much choice!

We don't have any itinerary for Norfolk, but if you see a couple of people wandering around loaded down with camera gear that includes a Canon A1, it's probably us.

I'll be filming in Norfolk next week ( w/c 11th ) let me know how you get on Annie. We've booked a 4hr sea trip out of Wells, I'm hoping to get some seabirds of some sort up close, some auks, ducks, etc while the lads fish.

I'll be trying to keep away from the Sparrow though, love birdwatchers, hate crowds

I keep dipping into this and it's quite fascinating, a lot of wild boar activity at the moment, but the image keeps freezing, could this be something to do with my computer settings, it distracts a bit from watching them interacting, they clearly have a heirarchy,

are these real wild boar or reintroductions, and what was the intention of having the camera set up?

Anyway I like it, anyone know of any other wildlife webcams on the go at the moment?

Frank,

Maybe worth checking the old stork nest as I have heard that the storks are arriving back early this year, particularly around Lake Constance in South Germany.

Wild Boars are back again

so we're tested it about few weeks with new equipment. And now it seems to be right moment to go public.
The place will be usually crowded around 5.00PM(GMT) with wild boars but You can find there lots of other guys even in daytime.

So right to the livefeed: livefeed
some articles in english: looduskalender.ee
article in estonian with drawing how the link from woods to viewer generally works(click on the drawing): Kernel - Metssea TV

Merry Christmas!

Frank,

I have only been able to catch one boar but have seen raptors eating off the table on the right of picture. Any idea what birds you are getting.

The quality of the picture & sound coming out of the forest is incredible.

Will you be having a live feed of the stork nest again this year?

Happy New Year to you and the team putting out this live feed

Bob

Food delivery just now by human + 2 buckets: soft meaty stuff to table; chunks of veg & stale bread scattered around clearing ... very interesting ... only jays and linnets/twite so far but more to come no doubt ...

Thanks for the link Frank

5 mins later same human + buckets scattering food pellets widely and seeds/nuts in 15 small piles ...

Brendan, They are now out for their New Years Eve dinner

Bob

PS: They seem to lack table manners, as they are very noisy eaters
