There is still sound but not much. This means that the volume is very low. And there are not much birds around anymore.

July 15

The camera runs quietly continue, Blueberries are dried in the fall, frozen in the spring for the Capercaillie :D

Without sound the cam is useless to me because I can't stare at the screen all day.

It has nothing to do with being impatient, but with efficiency. With good sound I can follow a cam while doing something else and switch to have a look when I hear something of interest.

I used 'worthless'.
Look at the bird list. https://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/vie ... 72#p570872
Only eight species seen, including Capercaillie, and 46 species only heard. After the capercaillies left the scene halfway May, there was already almost nothing to see, and since the sound is gone the chance to see something is almost zero.
Juta wrote on June 14 that the cam soon would be taken down and I am surprised that it is still running, even in this sorry state.

Well, the contract is probably running anyway and nobody has time to change the battery for the Micro.
Patience, please ... you do that wonderfully, thank you very much!

and maybe a new system will come soon...

Well, it cannot return without leaving first :laugh:
But yes, I understood that the cam will be back in spring in a preferably more stable configuration and perhaps at a different location.
