Oh, dang..:-(

Obviously the cam is near the shore since you can hear the waves and sea birds, so why not move it a little bit out to the coast so we can see the sea and some bird migration :hi: :mrgreen:

(I really like this cam since it has a low network footprint, the only one that can run at 74kb/s :D )

The cam is not easy to hide in sea shore. There are many people moving around and not all can pass such interesting thing without taking something with. Enough if only one can't resist. It is possible scenario not sure thing, though. Plus some possible problems with privacy of people if they appear in remote places hoping not to have more eyes around. We need to consider different aspects in society. Anyway, some people know that they are tracked, followed or filmed almost every time...
Also energy problems with less sun and shorter days, etc. So we will store this cam set for next season, probably starting with Capercaillie in early spring. But we will see, how it goes.
