Apologies to all viewers who have been trying to view the live cameras recently. We’re trying to iron out glitches to the stream coding after some big network changes at CSU which have meant a re-write of some of the important bits of code to stream outwards. Frustratingly we can see the streams inside CSU but that doesn’t translate to vision on the outside world just yet. Hang in there and thanks for your patience.
It’s been a relatively quiet week up the tower (in that regard), with Swift spending most of her days here now, and the odd visit from Beau. Yesterday we caught some fascinating bowing in the eyrie itself when Swift arrived with Beau already in residence. We’ll begin to upload more video clips as they appear. Any time now we’re hoping to witness some peregrines mating but if they’ve indeed been busy they’re elusive this season!
We also appear to have ironed out our long term recording archives. At one point it appeared we were only retaining about 3 days of video/audio footage but we’ve since found we’re indeed retaining around 50-60 days at a time, which is ideal for research and statistical analysis. We’ve also just received Cilla back from her marathon overseas trip and can now begin to put together objectives for this season’s events and records. Welcome home, Cilla!! Lots of stories to tell, no doubt!
