i've taken some pictures of sea eagles and ospreys from a web camera situated in the South-Western Finland archipelago. you can check it here: http://natureit.net/site/saaksikamera.p ... refresh=15
it's not as exciting as the Looduskalender cameras as there is no sound and the picture is refreshed only every 15-20 seconds. the camera is pointed at an osprey's nest which has been seriously challenged by a pair of young sea-eagles this spring. They were rehearsing family life there for a few weeks. then the weather turned worse for about a fortnight and the eagles weren't seen there.
a week ago on Sunday morning the osprey returned and settled at the nest as the master of the house and started to fix and redecorate it, waiting for it's spouse to return. nevertheless the young eagle couple go on visiting the nest every now and then.
so far i haven't been able to see them actually figth over the nest but i think that the eagles and the osprey must have been close to each other as i have caught them in successive pictures on the nest itself.
finally yesterday late in the afternoon the other osprey returned to the nest. unfortunately none of the birds, eagles or ospreys, haven't got any rings so it is practically impossible to identify them. my guess is that the first arriving osprey was male.
i uploaded one in the Photobucket to test the procedure (i haven't done this before):http://s561.photobucket.com/albums/ss54 ... ellaneous/
... yes, it is there but with too much extra rubbish. how should the pictures be loaded there or the address of the pictures be given so that the picture itself would open directly? (i'll have to study this more...
begins to feel almost like work
i'll put more pictures of these birds in Photobucket as soon as i learn how to do it properly. however, this may take some time...
