Ivanna - if you click on the link above - Elixabeth and Malcolm's Bluetit Pages - you can read our diary that was started in 2001.

There is not much happening yet this year, but I think it won't be too long before it gets more interesting.

Can anyone recommend a cam to use to record birds?

Try putting this question on the Technical forum - I think you're more likely to get some suggestions if you post it there! Fingers crossed

Are folks still running their webcams? I used to look in on Huw's and Elizabeth & Malcolm's quite often, as I don't get all that many birds in my own garden. I've just finished a big project on the house and finally got back to the forum, but none of the cams seem to be running these days I just get a blank page when I follow the links. Sad I suppose it's relatively quiet for everyone just now, though, so it may not be worth having them set up.

Many webcams are just in use during the breeding season, so our box cams are no longer switched on. I might start using the table cam again - I'll switch it on tomorrow, and see if many visitors come along.

However we run our hedgehog webcam in the evenings (unless we are away of course). I aim to go out before it gets dark, to put out the food, and switch on the webcam when I've done this. It is usually switched off when we go to bed, though occasionally we leave the computer on all night, so we can watch all the night time visits the next day. (The cam is actually called "Fat feeder" as it used to show the suet block feeder).

There are other members who have hedgehog webcams - lets hope they read this post.

Also, have a look here: http://www.pitt.edu/~dziadosz/

Thanks, Elizabeth, I've just been watching one of your hogs, who looks as if s/he is having a snooze inside the feeder cage. No, actually, edit that it was a feeding-frenzy! The hog's just scuttled off at a goodly pace, to reveal a bowl of food right under where its nose was.

I'll look in at your garden tomorrow, to see if you're getting any feathered visitors. I did see two actual birds in mine today, which was nice especially as one of them was the first robin I've seen since here last February. Very Happy

Hey Kit there's still three or four of us who run our webcams through Yahoo conference at night, me, Nicola, Boo and Pauline, if you want to log on when you're free, you don't have to join in the chat if you don't want, but you can still watch my cams and the others too I think. I just set up two cams last night for the first time, as I feed hoggies round both sides of the house, and we were able to watch two different hogs feeding simulataneously! Cool or what, lol! Very Happy PM me if you want the ids if you havent still got them from before.

Hello Jan,

Thanks for that, I'd forgotten about the webcams. I'm sure I've still got your ID, I saved it within the Yahoo Messenger thingie. I'll have a look in...

Meantime, Elizabeth and Malcom's garden seems almost as quiet as mine still, at least it's given me some time to strip down all the feeders, poles, etc, and give them a really good scrubbing!

There's a reason for this, Malcolm was working at the bottom of the garden - but there were several sightings of him as he walked up the path to the house, and back again a few times! Laughing As soon as he came in though, a crowd of birds went onto the four of the hanging feeders - there were 6 greenfinches and 3 goldfinches, and a few others coming and going.

I think we might move the camera to show one of the feeder poles instead. I filled all the feeders (including two spares) before we went away on Friday morning, and by the time we came home on Sunday evening the birds had emptied two 4-port feeders of sunflower hearts, and two of black sunflower seed as well as well as half emptying two more.

I weighed one of the 4-port feeders yesterday, before and after filling - it holds 510g of hearts! Rolling Eyes It's lucky for them that I can buy a 25kg sack at a much better price than the mail order companies!

Blimey 'eck, Elizabeth! I put one inch of sunflower hearts, chopped peanuts, and nyjer seed in each of my three feeders every week, and at this time of year I throw more than half of it away when I clean them at the weekends. I filled them last Saturday, and no peanuts at all have so far been taken the sunflower feeder has been used a bit, and the nyjer feeder a bit more (we never seem to lose all the goldfinches, as they seem to stick to a diet of seeds much more than the other small birds).

I shall have another look at your webcam now, unless you're in the midle of moving it... Very Happy

You are more than welcome to join us in chat. At this time of year the hogs start arriving around 9.00pm. If you still have Jan's id you will be invited in if you message her.

Otherwise pm me and I can invite you in.

Thanks Boo! I haven't logged in yet, as I'm often getting ready for bed by 9pm (Embarassed), but I do have more energy some days. They're great fun to watch they look like eerie little ghosts on the infra-red cameras!
