Someone told me that there is something on Facebook, in Estonian, about possible delays, or problems with pig cam Can Estonian members look, please, and tell us what is written there? It may be something that has not yet been posted to the English language page.

Is it here?

Hi Jo!

Using google translator, I'd found this from facebook:

2010 Pig Camera looks, however, the ground from freezing, which usually takes place in early December.

But translating from eestikeelest I would say: Pig camera is waiting the ground freezing, which normally happens beginning of december....

Finnish and Estonian languages are related, so ... :rolleyes:

I think this info is from last season... there is a status that said: There are still problems with the forest-cam(pig-cam), for example, grain prices have doubled since last year, etc., but we will soon try to get all working.
Hope that they put the cam on soon...i cant wait to see piggies :loveshower:

Just a little news to say that there is hope for us webcam addicts, but there is a bit more delay.

The cables and antenna were damaged in the August hurricane and the system needs to be replaced. Urmas will do that at his earliest opportunity. He has other obligations, reports to write, and so on, that take priority to his time, but we know he is our friend.

I can't help wondering how much of a problem there is in getting food this year. How much food was used last year? We know that a lot was donated. Can anyone find information about this?

Wildboars are pretty good at digging snow off and grazing stuff to eat from ground in the winter, but ground freezing is one thing that makes boars' living much more difficult.

Though this year I'm not sure if the ground ended up freezing very deep cause the snows came so early and example southern Finland has now up to 50cm of snow (little above 1,5ft) which is all-times record for December and I think north Estonia has about equal snow thickness.
(Newspapers has told about "Snow catastrophe in Estonia" in past couple of days)

Snow thickness makes the boars (and deers and other big herbivoral animals) living difficult, but I think this year the way uplifted prices of grain is the main reason for Sigacam delays, not ground unfreezeness.

Last winter I counted 56 boars from cam 2 screenshots. I wonder how many wee see this winter?

Jo, I gotta giggle -- using google translate it is hard to know, just what it might say

"Winter feral doings begin to introduce in the coming weeks via a webcam, a preacher in the woods with a credible peace of Christmas."

But my guess would be that it is not really saying that the cams will open after Christmas -- just some time in the next few weeks.

It is a lovely picture.

LOL - "A credible peace!"

The hunters' Association has a No Hunting Policy which they name Christmas Peace, which starts on 21st December. I forget how long it lasts - maybe till New Year? Someone in Estonia, please correct me.

I think Google is hinting that the webcam may start on or near to the Christmas Peace time.
That part about the "preacher in the woods" is baffling!
I am sure Liis will put us right, when she has time to translate.

It will be interesting to see how it comes out when a real human works on it. My sense is that the cam is like a preacher from the woods -- bringing us brotherly feelings.
Oh dear...
