The WTE nesting season 2013 forum pages start here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=535
On the first link, the Looduskalender link you will also find an introduction to the fifth nesting season of the white-tailed sea eagle (WTE) camera written by Urmas Sellis (Estonian Ornithological Society, ESTLAT- Eagles cross borders project).
The White-Tailed Eagle Camera News in Looduskalender can be found here:http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/node/2906In connection of the live camera there is also a camera which takes still pictures of the nest once every minute for the archives. This camera is called Pontu camera
. A similar camera is operational at each EENET- bird's nest camera. The still pictures can be found in addresses which are of the following form:*ttp://pontu.eenet.ee/saunja/2013-04-08/2013-04-08-08-36.jpg
Here the first letter h has been replaced with *
, so that the address can be seen as whole. In the address above 'saunja' refers to the WTE nest. For other nests this part should be changed to for example with 'kure' for the black storks Tiina and Tiit's nest camera, or 'tooni' for the other black stork's nest which has in recent years been inhabited by lesser spotted eagles Tuuli and Remo. The date appears in the address twice (in the above example 2013-04-08 means April 8th 2013) and the time -08-36 means 36 minutes past 8 am. Editing the date and time will open the desired Pontu picture. Note that the date needs to be changed twice. If the picture is not found even for a seemingly valid address the time may be too early or too late: pictures are taken and stored only in the light time of the day. Both cameras, the live and the Pontu camera switch off in darkness in order to save energy.
Both work, however, in very low light levels so in the last and first pictures of the day almost nothing can be seen.
