UPDATE TO FLYER'S RESCUE
David, Richard and Karen are on the 11:00 am ferry! Richard is going to attempt to broadcast live, from the ferry, IF the signal is strong enough.
So keep an eye on the home page video player! NOW!
All things being equal, the "mats" for the crane are supposed to arrive on site at 12:30 pm and the crane at 2:00 pm. Richard will attempt to broadcast live and, of course, we may be able to see something from the cams.
There will be someone from WildARC there as well.
UPDATE ON FLYER'S RESCUE
David is taking the11:00 am ferry to Sidney arriving there just before 1:00 pm.
Someone has seen the newscast and donated the mats required for an attempt to use the crane to access the nest. It will take awhile to get the mats in place before the crane arrives at 2 p.m.
Bear in mind that it still has to be detemined if "operation mats" is feasible.
There will be updates if and when they come up!
