Hi, Pat -- I might have bought the "damp" thing vis a vis the sound before but it's been sunny all day today Titter So IMHO the answer for why the sound is "gone" is, who knows but let's hope it comes back soon LOL



Drat - you mean we have to find another reason?
Anyway - at least it doesn't happen often Grin

Looks as if both Delta OWL cams are down - will try to restart the encoders.

Re: Sidney Closeup camera

Quiet evening sounds of frogs interrupted by a poplike sound,

then the audio went to a loud buzzing.

:cry1:

I'm afraid it seems to do that from time to time, ArbourHeart. Hopefully it will be something that can be fixed in the fall when David and his team are doing maintenance on the cams. As far as I know, it's nothing that can be fixed or adjusted without going into the tree - which of course we can't do while the eagles are around.

The good news is that (knock on wood) the buzz seems to go away after a while.

Hi Judy :hello:

Ah ok, I wasn't sure if you (collectively) wanted to document when it went down or not.

THus I won't post if it isn't necessary. Phew

fingers crossed Hopefully it will be ok for most of the viewing season! fingers crossed

Cheers,

Cheryl

Good thought, Cheryl - and I've no idea. Richard Pitt, our primary tech person, does monitor this thread - so we'll wait to hear from him. Smile

Yes I do (monitor the thread) Wink

I'm afraid that things like dead/dying microphone is not something we can easily deal with outside the general maintenance times of "after the eagles have gone"

Even if the problem is nowhere near the nest - just getting to the Sidney site (or many of the other sites) is a costly problem so we try really hard not to go on site for anything.

I personally love the sounds from the Sidney camera so if it is not working I'll miss it. Might have to turn the volume down on the computer (which can be done remotely) to ensure it does not annoy people too much if it persists.
