Grey Seal Webcam on Vilsandi, Estonia 2014

Post by Felis silvestris » March 4th, 2014, 3:26 pm

The camera is working again! http://www.looduskalender.ee/node/19354

The seal camera on a small islet off Vilsandi in Estonia has been repaired. The view has slightly changed.

Maybe they were counting pups and so they could do some repair on the cam support.

it's a shame that we can't see the horizon and some sky above it.
but who cares. it's so good to hear the waves again. :rolleyes:

there's one moomy seal with a baby in the waterline. the other sealcubs are lounging on the rocks. the one on the left was waving its flipper to the camera. :D

16:43 some more calls. now two eagles are singing longer. babies are wrestling on the right. :D

Four seal cubs and two adults. The crow flew away and now a gull is on its place.

just got back ... I am so tired ...

Camera is the same, but in new place, facing east I think.
We deliberately tilted it down to catch all the action in the shore. Can be readjusted later.

Solar panels stand was so rotten, that wind has blown it over. Cables ripped off box cover, under what all the electronics was. When we got there, in the first time, it was full of water and all the things inside was damaged beyond repairs. Fortunately panels itself where okay. Today we did build a new stand with stronger and more waterproof box and replaced almost all power cables and electronics.

After three trips it's finally working, but not quite in good shape we would like to. Holding breath that it will wake up in the morning and keep working after week or so. We did not find right power converter to replace broken one. Actual replacement used right now is less efficient and not that reliable, but it is working for now ...
