An intense cold front swept rapidly across the south coast earlier this morning. In the wake of the front, very strong northwest winds developed over the exposed coastal sections of the south coast. These northwesterly winds of up to 70 km/h with gusts to 90 km/h will gradually ease over the Inner South coast this morning.

The nest is swaying back and forth in the wind. (69km/h gusts)
Can see the adults head near the tree trunk. The area must be lit up by the yard lights.

Wow - that's a wild ride Mum is having - if it's calmer now - I hate to think what is was like in the night!!

BTW - I thought this cam was on Wild Earth?
All I get is a notice saying it is not archived??

I'm a bit fuzzy about finding things at WE/Zap, but do know they're using one of the Chehalis channels at least temporarily - I'd try checking those. I'm guessing it will have its proper name there before long, but they chose to bring it to us sooner by using a channel that was already in place and not being used once the Chehalis tower cams were taken down.

Thank you for the pics of Mom and the eggs - haven't had a peek at the eggs myself, and do feel a need for seasick pills as I watch the nest - but I know it's actually worse for us than for Mom because the cam is zoomed quite a bit, which exaggerates the movement. (Though it definitely is windy there!)
