Christmas present for you: new tower cam

After about a year of negotiating, some nagging and fund-raising, we finally have our new view – a cam pointed at the tower, so you can watch the peregrines flying around, and possibly see other birds, like this welcome swallow.

Here is the link to the live cam  https://youtu.be/qviBDtG9-gg

And a link (thanks, Birdie Cam) to the first video of peregrines landing on the tower

 

thanks to all those who made this possible: Paul Carpenter who donated the cam (which was originally used to record the construction of the new medical faculty);  the IT team, particularly Jason Lyons, Luke Blewett and Ayden Beeson, who went way beyond their normal duties and work hours to make this happen; and last but by no means least all those wonderful people who donated to the FalconCam Project, which enabled the cam to be linked to the CSU network, saving the project the cost of ongoing data transfer.

All the best for Christmas and the New Year !
