Are there any updates available on when the camera might go live?  Can hardly wait to see our Hornby family again!

We are getting very close, but still have a couple of adjustments to make (isn't that always the way?)  There will be an announcement posted here 24 hours before the cam goes live.

Waiting for the start up of the new camera is very difficult.  :nod2  All will be revealed when the team has everything working as it should.  Patience is a virtue - - - -  :eclol

I am sitting here chuckling as I am reminded of a line from the 1965 movie 'The Agony and the Ecstasy'.( about the relationship between Michaelangelo painting the frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and Pope Julius II, who when not off fighting to secure Italy, nagged Michelangelo to speed up his painful work on the frescoes.)

Michaelangelo would be up on the scaffolding looking up for hours while painting the ceiling.  The Pope would come into the chapel and look up and ask him "when will it be done?".  To which Michaelangelo always replied "when it is done".    :eclol

BTW - Charlton Heston portrayed Michaelangelo and Rex Harrison the Pope.  :thumbup:

 :eclol  BBE

We're all looking forward to the day we can watch the Hornby eagles live again!   :thumbup:

It will be quite a different view because of the distance from the cam to the tree, but we should be able to see some things we haven't been able to see before.   :nod2

Update!

We know everyone is anxious to see the new cam. We have been testing it and want to tell you where we are at the moment.

While testing, we have seen some wonderful views of the eagles from a vantage point that we did not have before with the original cameras. The cam could not be installed as high in Gregg's Tree as we had hoped, so zooming to the very tip of the Babysitting Tree is not possible at this time, but we can see Mom or Dad sitting in the tree and flying in and out from it. We can see Mom's part when she is on the nest facing the water and the fly-ins and -outs from the nest are wonderful.

We have been able to identify a number of landmarks in Mom and Dad's territory and have some presets on the cam in order to "tour" their area.

We like what we're seeing, and hope that those who are anxious to see Mom and Dad and who have always wondered what happened beyond the view of the original cams, will like it too.

There is an issue we'd like to see resolved before going live and we are awaiting delivery of a part. Fortunately, we have some great help and we are confident this will be resolved.

Nancy, thanks for the update. Great photos, as you know I love the evening view of the 'golden stump'.

Many thanks to all, you're the best.  :woohoo
