More on Hornby Viewing - cutting one of the cameras for now

Wildlife News

The saga of the video feed from Hornby Island to the rest of the world continues.

As noted in the previous item we've tried to put a second modem into the Hornby location (thanks Doug Carrick :) but are currently not able to. Telus, the provider of service, has put a hold on new accounts until it can re-do the whold island's network infrastructure.

In the mean time we're going to cut the problem in half by turning off the wide-angle camera for the next while, at least until the eaglets start moving around on the branches (branching).

There will be notices in the discussion forum and we'll post a note on the actual camera page - but nothing will be done until we can coordinate with the WildEarth.TV people - some time in the next day or so.

Turning off one of the cameras should allow the main, close-up camera, to work without any hesitations due to the crowded bandwidth on the local link. There may still be some hesitations due to the fact that the Hornby network infrastructure is stretched - but this should not be all the time as it is now.

Hi there,


I have been away for a few days and noticed that there is only one eaglet at the Hornby Nest?  Did something happen to the other Eaglet? 


Thank you.  Lucy123
