Well, what do you think folks? Should we coalesce around another webcam while this one's down?Záchranná stanice živočichů Makov - Krmítko (Bird feeder) seems quite lively - that's the one Fergus found in Estonia, and I've seen great tits, blue tits, tree sparrows, nuthatch and a jay this morning. Maybe we'll see some other new birds that we don't get at LG? And it might do wonders for our Estonian (there's a chat line), although if anyone can speak Finnish, you'll be able to get by. Or should we stick with an osprey one? Mike you mentioned Valerie posted a link but I can't find it. Is it active ie breeding (so somewhere southern hemisphere??). Whatever we do, we should keep up the chat on some sort of agreed link/page?? I know there are other threads but THIS ONE'S THE BEST!
Korky, I think you are referring to the Port Lincoln osprey nest at the link below. The feeder cam is still working on Carnyx. Ian www.youtube.com/watch

That's very thoughtful of you, KORKY but I have so got my hands full and am so rather under the weather that I'm thinking it might be best not to substitute any cam for our LG feeder, for the time being, at least.
This is what I'm covering at the mo:
Starr Ranch - 4 cams, Barn Owl cavity; PTZ outside view; mini-spa (mainly mice and slugs presently); Trail (blocked by a fallen oak limb)
For the Osprey Friends Facebook page:
NE Florida Bald Eagles - 4 very problematic cams, Samson & Gabrielle, first-timers, due to lay an egg soon if they're ever going to this season
SW Florida Bald Eagles - 4 cams, M15 & Harriet, incubating 2 eggs and I've let them lapse lately (Lady Hawk does good coverage)
Another thought - whatever we cover, perhaps it should be in a thread on Wildlife on the Web, and this thread will be comatose until March or the resurrection of the LG feeder cam ???

This was overlooked from a few days ago - nice view of the Crestie's back-of-head pattern :)
Tuesday 03 December
Coal Tit and Crestie were earliest at the feeder - a squirrel was not seen until nearly half an hour after daycam! This was the second squirrel, a sweetie:
We had a mottly Coal Tit:
Another biffed it away:
Mottly came back and biffed away its aggressor:
And settled for a short, peaceful feed :)
Later a mottly Great Tit:
After the last Coal Tit had left, there were 3 Crestie visits - by how many Cresties, I cannot say:
And then! An unusual sight, short 'n sweet:
Wednesday 04 December
Whaaa?! A ghost of one of our dearest ospreys? Heehee ;-D
No-one else turned up for half an hour after the squirrel had left.
It got nearly 5 minutes peace and then:
It seems a very long nightcam this morning but I can't check cos I've deleted the clip with the start on it:
Loads of birds all day, no-one unusual, the odd Chaffie included but not here, where I think we have 11 birds:
Coal Tit was last.
