It took me a bit to find it and it is now called Ospreys in England and Finland, but there is a thread for Finland. It has not been very active this year, but maybe if you post, more people will join you.

What a fine tool, macdoum, thank you! :headroll:

I just checked the Discover Life main page. They "provide free on-line tools to identify species, share ways to teach and study nature's wonders, report findings, build maps, process images, and contribute to and learn from a growing, interactive encyclopedia of life that now has 1,224,575 species pages."

Some news and information from a french site re; Identifying Bird fom rings also link to ring colours.

Don't see Eagles listed but the info is split into two links apparently !
http://www.cr-birding.be/#bookmark_crprojects1

edit New site:
http://www.cr-birding.org/
.

The old website with >1000 cr-projects will step-by-step be integrated into this website. This means that for the time being information on cr-projects is available on two websites. Do not forget to check www.cr-birding.be.
My excuses for this inconvenience
So,all will be centered in one place. :2thumbsup: (sorry if this has been posted already )

Webmaster sent ut this useful tool. It is a speedtest, useful for webcam watching. We need a connection of faster than 1 Mbit/s to get a good stream for viewing our webcams.

http://193.40.132.138/speedtest.html
All users can test the connectivity and speed from their computer to the camera server.

Macdoum suggested to add a wind map Agatheb2k posted:

Really nice, you can chose a part of the world and see the wind and also click on the part and see the speed

Thanks Agatheb2k and Macdoum
