Hello @ all :hi:

Like many of you I am waiting for a hint/article on LK main page about the fate of the cam here, but in vain until now.

So I made a request to our webmaster, in hope to get at least some vague news ...

All he could currently say is, that the cam itself is not working and maybe needs to be replaced completely on the island.

It´s unknown when this can happen and we also know that weather and water don´t allow an easy access to the island (apart from the fact that it is protected area).

So, unfortunately, no breaking good news here, but better than nothing, I think.

All in all it sounds that there will be no quick solution :cry:

Let´s cross our fingers and hope, that a cam can be got going before winter comes :unsure:

Bea, thanks for finding that much. Seal webcam is popular. Sometimes it is popular for the seal interest. Sometimes just the sound of the sea, birds, seals (or not) feels so pleasant to have as background to the day.

The seals should be lying on the shore now, well-eaten and lazy in the warm weather, their sad and beautiful "singing" mixing with the roar of the waves. I do miss these souns but always patiently waiting when need be.

Thank you for the information. It is sad, but we must be patient.

:hi:
As I understand, a new camera is needed.
The camera is not cheap. I can partially support the purchase of a new camera.
I do not know who to support, whom and where to transfer money.
In fact, I do not know if the camera is intended to run again.
I miss this camera very much.
Waiting for news - Whether help is needed or not.

Hi!
What a great thought! That would be nice to have back this view! :thumbs:

Good idea aita, I could pay a bit too :hi:

Another thing: I was listening to a radio show here when people asks a panel of experts all about nature.
One question was "What are the natural threats of seals in the Baltic sea?" and one expert answered, "probably WTE"

Huh :puzzled: We have seen 1 incident when WTE attacks a pup during all these years, but normally they only eat afterbirths and dead ones, right??
Well eagles can have disturbed individuals too I guess :unsure:

So what are the natural threats?
