    just in case Scylla is busy elsewhere.

    I cover the whole day/night in sections when I get around to it, Mary - I shall still do today because my one-and-a-half YouTube followers might like to see  

    My Glaslyn was also on 720p but I just changed it to 1080p and it's held thru a refresh.

    Poole Harbour was also @ 1080p but I was suspicious, so I did a spearmint and changed Glaslyn to 480p and - lo & behold! - Poole Harbour also went to 480p.

    PH was always a rather low res, it will be interesting if CJ7 will look any different when she arrives (we fervently hope).

    EDIT - and also fervently hope there will be someone to fertilise her eggs this season

  • A delightful little video , thanks Mary. I changed my settings to 480 quality and it came into focus (just for what it is worth, - I didn't find HD in my settings )

  • Another thought - reducing the quality could be very useful if we have broadband capacity problems, trying to cover lots of nests.  I actually don't mind non-HD, as long as we can see what going on clearly enough - and it's usually cams that are trying to send out higher quality than their connection is fit for that causes problems, IMHO

    Mary, Love the Kestrel video! I wonder if that bird is a 2020-hatched bird, what with all that bouncing around on twigs on the nest; looks like youthful exuberance to me. What do you think?

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • Thanks for your reply re the settings SCYLLA - I think it must be something You tube has done because I am positive all my Loch Arkaig videos I did last year were in HD - but now when I look at them on my Channel they only have the option of 480 p.   I think I need to do a bit of research on this, as I really don't fancy all my videos now showing at only 480 p. which I feel looks very poor on screen.

    Ann I am no expert at all, but I thought it looked to be a young bird too.

    Yesterday:

    Last evening - momentary evidence of LenSpider's presence - otherwise it was a very still night again:

    Nothing special today up to about 16:25.

    It wont be so still and calm for the next 48 hours, i expect Lenspider may well go.

    Here's a strand showing signs of the strain you predict, Richard - I'm posting it for KORKY, she may want to send out a rescue party.

    Scylla,
    If you want a laugh look at the hoirizontal rain and the wind @1935. It just shows how exposed an Osprey nest actually is.
