One of the two nesting Swallows that we have the cameras on must have hatched yesterday by the way that the parent birds are feeding them today. I shouldn’t think that the eggs in the other nest wont be long from hatching. As for the Robin she hardly sits on the nest at all. I cant imagine that her eggs will hatch. I hope that I am wrong.

I spoke to Peter in Delaware this afternoon, he hopes to move the USA Osprey camera higher tomorrow so the we can see into the nest. He told me that their are two chicks in the nest. If all goes to plan we shall be able to see inside the nest tomorrow. We are going to send Peter a pan tilt and zoom camera, the type we use on the Farm and other locations that you see the cameras move. With the camera he hopes to be able to show more of the wildlife that there is around Indian River Bay. The name Indian River Bay does get my mind working overtime. The new camera will be sent to him within the month.

I also managed to speak to Michael in the Virgin Islands this afternoon. A permit is needed to put a camera into the sea. The people who issue the permits are helping Michael in the application, and can see no objections to it. We are having a new camera fitted into the under water enclosure that will go into infra red mode as it get darker. It should prolong the time that we will be able to see the sea life as it gets darker.
