Some system parts are still being tested, so transmission interruptions may occur – try soon again!
Operating season for this webcam is expected to be shorter than we are accustomed to when watching nests of birds of prey. This is because after hatching, the chicks spend about two weeks in the nest and then start to disperse amongst the reeds.
The web camera is installed within the project “Restoration of Bittern habitats in two coastal lakes in Latvia” (COASTLAKE LIFE12 NAT/LV/000118). The project is financed by the European Commission LIFE+ program and Latvian Environmental Protection Fund.
