Karen asked about the Turtle Camera. Once the underwater camera is working a decision will be made about the Turtle Camera. It is taking a long time for the underwater camera to get going. I had hoped for it to be working by now, although the last email I received from Michael, my contact in the Virgin Islands was received on the 2nd of October. I believe that I put it on the Diary back a while. Any way here it is again.

Sorry I have been so out of touch but this has been a very busy hurricane and remodeling season for me. I have a kitchen and pool remodel that I am overseeing as well as re painting the Main house and to boot, I have had three surgical procedures in the last two months! Busy!

As for a status update… Everything is a go, just taking more time than I would have ever guessed. We have the necessary approvals and the underwater security holder has been constructed, the solar power set up and gel battery are the only hold ups. Waiting on the panel I am told as well as the gel style battery since it will be in a marine environment and we don’t want to risk contaminating the water with an acid spill. Worst case scenario is the cam will be up and running in December. I am truly hoping for November. With regards, Michael.

I also need to get a new camera over to Peter at Indian River Bay in Delaware USA, for the coming Osprey Season. If you remember Peters House overlooks the Osprey nest that is only a hundred metres or so from his house. We are going to send Peter a PTZ camera that he will install on his balcony. He will then be able to zoom in very close into the nest, as well as the Lake also in front of his house and hopefully to see other Birds of Prey in the area. If I remember correctly the Bold Eagle, Brown Eagle that Peter tells me is quite rare and another species that I forget the name of.
