EagleCAM volunteers overcome storms and computer crashes!
Live streaming at the White-bellied Sea Eagle nest has resumed. An amazing effort! Below is an update from Judy Harrington and the team.
Our EagleCAM volunteers have been doing an amazing job updating our system and the camera maintenance. The team have been hard at work every day, for a couple of weeks. The cables were all pulled right back and then replaced in a more efficient system. For the third time a lot of our equipment has suffered storm damage. (We lost a camera, media converter, IR light and a switch)
Nest 3 camera has come down for maintenance, and will be replaced by a new camera. The repaired Nest 3 camera will be mounted on the elevation pole and put on the adjacent tree. The remaining old camera will be mounted at another location in the reserve. Meanwhile, back at the Discovery Centre, our main recording and archiving computer has crashed and all of the new equipment is being installed. On and on.
Then there are the volunteers who manage the live streaming and Facebook pages, and the moderators. Research approvals are in process for the coming breeding season.
Our project is funded purely by donations and the work of a great team of volunteers. We are privileged to be able to continue this valuable research and thank everyone for their continuing support.
