Website Information Update: Webcams and Forum

As users to our web sites may or may not be aware there has been a considerable number of security updates made available over the past couple of weeks by the major software suppliers. Users may or may not also have experienced some difficulties in viewing our live camera feeds (Bath and Norwich Peregrines and Somerset Barn Owls).

We have, this afternoon, been informed that earlier today our software streams from the live cameras have been updated. We would urge all users that if they still experience difficulties to check that they are using the latest operating system and browser updates.

This has now been investigated further; due to the age of some of the software and the non-availability of new updates we are very sorry to inform you that the site will not be reinstated. We can confirm that this was run as an isolated website and no data were compromised.

We are in the process of initial planning for a new website and will make further announcements on this in the future regarding its content.
