I was curious to see whether this cam was back on line. Sadly, this is what I found:

It really is too bad - I was not expecting this to happen in this way. I had really been enjoying this site. I do wish the host had been more communicative.

No, I don't stream all year, only when there is a snow on the ground. Other times, there is a lot of food for birds in a forest, so we don't feed them. So, the feeder and the stream work starting at November and until March, maybe first half of April.

On 22nd of December, I think, it will be a light at an interval of 08:00-15:00 local time. I mean "not fully dark". For birds, probably, it will be a little shorter time, such as 08:15-14:45. Our time zone is GMT+3 (3 hours ahead of UTC).
I think it's just gone off for its usual break, Van.

It does say it streams from November to March, maybe first half of April.

It might be a bit arduous/time consuming to post in English very often .

Well, I am at least glad that the "certificate warning" is gone; at least that has been taken care of, most likely a registering of domain. Now we know that it will come back again. I really do wish we could have seen more of the snow melt and the different birds migrating through. I had sent 2 PM's to Brigadier that were never accessed asking for more information about their feeder and the birds that visit and for photos of what the area looks like in the summer without snow. So, until next November folks...let us not forget. ;)

Yes, I thought it was just the yearly fee, RB.

Perhaps the Brigadier will post a 'snow gone' photo for us :D

I think the cam is back on - I'm sure I saw a bluetit moving but I can't yet get the feed to stay on my phone - they've changed over the wotsits, it says lol

I checked earlier, when it would have been daylight there (after midnight here, last night) and still got the same picture and message that I posted above, when it went off line. I'm not sure whether it maybe needs flash to stream ... but my guess is that it's not up and running yet.

The picture I get has a turquoise arrow in the middle and bottom left.
There are four different links to try to get this as they've changed their wotsits for android users :D

I think they are getting it primed to start soon. Early morning here I got the still picture without the X and other stuff. Later on in the day the X and other infor mentioned by others was back...so coming soon I would guess...would like to see a summer picture of the area. I sent a PM to Brigadier months ago, but it was never accessed. :scratch:
