De Mortel; refresh images from three webcams on one page:

All WSN webcams refresh images:

De Mortel is back on-line. http://www.slechtvalkdemortel.nl/

However, the page does not refresh in Internet Explorer  eek! I have read reports that it won't work in Google Chrome either . . . . .  nope

To have the refresh working, you can copy a script on this page : http://www.freebirds.nl/slechtvalken/links/script.html .(Courtesy Gerrit van Roy)

Paste it in a Notepad document and save it with the extension .vbs EXAMPLE: demortel.vbs You can save it to "My Documents" and put a link on your desktop.
Disadvantage is that it refreshes the whole page and the images "flash", no smooth transition to the next image.

In Firefox it seems to refresh fine, although I had something weird going on on Saturday and Sunday; the time stamp jumped back every now and then, sometimes four (!) minutes.

Root of the problem seems to me to be the program they use to "grab" the images and put them on the internet.
The images of all three webcams come in sequences of five.  puzzled2

But there is another way to watch: you can try this one: http://mortelcams2011.peregrines.nl
This shows the last 5 shots of all 3 cams (so 15 in total)
That also means that every shot is available for 50 seconds

The official site does not show the complete pictures. They are "cut off" due to bad css code behind the page.  rolleyes2
See the difference:

Thanks, DEF - no promises about how soon I'll be able to look (so many eagle cams this time of year!) - but I did fall in love with them years ago so will try to watch soon. 

When are they likely to have eggs?

And thanks so much for all the links and options - fortunately I have Firefox, which should simplify matters a little.

In 2008 (first year for S2 to have a clutch of her own) the first egg was laid on March 13. In 2009 the date was March 15 and in 2010 it was March 16.

Thanks, DEF! 

It would be interesting to see S2 with her own chicks, since I do remember vividly her arrival on the scene (and haven't watched more than a few minutes now and then since then  blush2).  I think I'll make a mental note to have a look in March and see what's happening.  bigsmile

It looks like she has begun to prepare a little bowl in the nestbox. Smiley

The refresh page is down, due to hosting problems.
But the live streaming video with sound started on March 1, on the site of the Dutch Bird Protection Association:
