RB2sMom: Memories from past cams Chat image
RB2sMom: Awful news Bruce, it seems most companies don't know what "customer service" means anymore. The squeaky wheel gets the grease...keep after them till they fix it. I remember when they thought it was my modem, and it turned out to be a node on a pole in the street. Another time it turned out to be wet wiring which they replaced. OK now
KimmyRoo: how frustrating
Bruce: so we wait till the new 1 arrives and still doesn't work Emoticon emoticon-18
Bruce: my current 1 is ok but they reckon its no good
Bruce: we are getting a new modem wont be here for 3 days
KimmyRoo: and more seed bellsa
KimmyRoo: I have some good maggie food to put out tomorrow
KimmyRoo: If theres anyway I can help bruce just let me know...Happy to beat them up
Bruce: wont be able to stream for a couple of days now until my net get fixed
Rick: Good Night! Emoticon emoticon-15
vanislander: I'm off to bed, Rick - g'night
vanislander: Yes I read that - very short-lived
Rick: wow it says their lifespan average is 2yrs with some living to 5yrs
vanislander: Many wouldn't agree - they are seen by many as destructive pests
vanislander: Must be Emoticon emoticon-18
Rick: I think your raccoons are a worthy replacement there Emoticon emoticon-31
Rick: habitat loss I guess
vanislander: We don't have them in N America - just porcupines
Rick: More recent estimates put them at less than a million Emoticon emoticon-18
vanislander: I remember seeing them occasionally when I lived in England
Rick: They are perhaps doing better on the european mainland if Recke is anything to go by Emoticon emoticon-44
vanislander: German 'mecki' dolls Emoticon emoticon-15
Rick: I don't think they are doing too well in the UK, estimates put it at over 30 million in the 1950's but in 2011 they estimated 1.5 million
vanislander: awwww hedgehogs are so cute
Rick: I don't think I could outdo the two-doors-down neighbour and their chimney, no idea what they burn but it stinks worse than any fire I've smelt Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: Light a smoky, smelly fire in the garden
Rick: Great clip from Recke
Rick: He's quite deaf so it'd be difficult Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: Will you get even?
Rick: Wouldn't mind living in a detached house Emoticon emoticon-62
Rick: He did the same for most of yesterday Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: grrrr That's pretty inconsiderate
Rick: Well I was woken up at 7:30 ish by next door banging something with a hammer...
vanislander: Gosh Ricky! You're an early bird!
Rick: Emoticon emoticon-60
vanislander: King Parrots at Nowra again Chat image
AussieAl: The hare and the tortoise?

AussieAl: As will you.
vanislander: Yes - you'll race through it Emoticon emoticon-49
AussieAl: Yes, the pencil needs sharpening here, Emoticon emoticon-62.
AussieAl: Oh well. 1* tomorrow.
vanislander: I used the pencil a lot - knew it would slow me down
vanislander: It started out easily - I felt confident ...
AussieAl: I kept on running into dead ends. Emoticon emoticon-11
vanislander: Emoticon emoticon-62 I really didn't earn it!
AussieAl: Naaah. Emoticon emoticon-36 —> Van.
vanislander: Took me 19:15
vanislander: Well - I took less time - but I did use the 'check' to confirm a choice. I was very frustrated - so it's a stalemate
AussieAl: Congratulations Van. I took exactly 32 minutes. Emoticon emoticon-21

AussieAl: Let’s hope so.
Bruce: it's NBN's error
Bruce: TPG will do what they can today I hope
Bruce: no mate hopeless all weekend
AussieAl: So, the NBN is no better?
Bruce: I'll switch off at lunch time then back about 3PM to catch the afternoon feed
AussieAl: I needed to get up for a minute, so I turned my cam on.
Bruce: G'Day Al Emoticon emoticon-53
Bruce: it'll go on wireless until I turn it off to save data

AussieAl: Good catch of the KPs, Van.
vanislander: What an interesting stroll, Al. Thanks for sharing!
vanislander: It was an adult KP and juvenile
vanislander: King Parrots on Nowra cam
vanislander: That turkey should partner up with our squirrels - they do a lot of digging in our garden

AussieAl: That darn cockie just bit off one of my succulents!

AussieAl: I always do the previous day, to be in synch with you.
AussieAl: It was Saturday’s that I did just now.
AussieAl: I think I follow all that, Van, Emoticon emoticon-62.
vanislander: Sometimes the next day's is already there and I didn't realize it - so my time was 13:11 - I never did Friday's Must be really confusing for you, being a day ahead Emoticon emoticon-38
vanislander: Grrrr - really messed up Al - when I went to do today's it had been done Emoticon emoticon-18

khynan: telstra out
AussieAl: Our magnolia is starting to flower: Chat image
RB2sMom: Yes, Rick, I remember growing up in those hot Oklahoma summers with no AC when I was younger. It was so hot that we would wet the sheets and our hair and turn a fan on us at night to sleep
RB2sMom: G'day all Emoticon emoticon-59
Rick: Okay Bruce, take care
Bruce: gotta go mate Joy's calling me hooroo

Bruce: yep I wish
Rick: just weird how it went so hot for one day Emoticon emoticon-62
Rick: I think it was a little cooler where I'm at but it was still 35 ish
Bruce: 39 ??? warm for you mate
Rick: Emoticon emoticon-44
Rick: Chat image
Bruce: yep we don't have true competition here
Bruce: so not even close
Bruce: I'm supposed to have 50 down and 20 up Emoticon emoticon-62
Rick: The NBN rates that they charge ISP's for capacity are quite high compared to other countries too
Bruce: for sure
Rick: They should, They get away with far too much down there.
Bruce: wish that happened here
Rick: They changed rules here that if internet is unusuable for more than 48hrs after you tell the ISP of a problem they have to give you £8 for each day it's not fixed
Bruce: i've got about 20Mbs down and 0.50 upload at the moment so it will keep dropping out on the NBN
Bruce: np
Bruce: $30 for 30 gig
Bruce: it's only for a couple of days hopefully
Rick: That sounds expensive Bruce Emoticon emoticon-18
Bruce: seed time Emoticon emoticon-53
Bruce: only 2 today seems the babys have left
Bruce: Kooka time
Bruce: using the phone network Emoticon emoticon-62
Bruce: I'm back had to buy mobile broadband to be able to stream Emoticon emoticon-18
RB2sMom: Very early morning at the original place Chat image
RB2sMom: Rick, we had something similar here, the Thunderbirds and Blue Angles did loops around our hospitals as well as some precision paratroopers.
Rick: I just watched a spitfire fly a loop around my area. Amazing sound those old planes make. They are doing a big loop around hospitals in the south east of England, the plane has been painted Blue with "THANK U NHS" across the underside of the wings and then the names of 80,000 nominated names all over it, though I don't think they have completed hand writing them all yet
Rick: it seems that they slide it along so it probably does need something to hold it. Emoticon emoticon-15
Rick: screen recording of when it happened Emoticon emoticon-62
Rick: Chat image
khynan: it attack me
vanislander: huh? Emoticon emoticon-44
khynan: my day was great Emoticon emoticon-53

khynan: cave them fresh seed and put the tray back up cuase those maggies keep knocking it down
khynan: been to check on nowra cam
vanislander: I've known bad ones in Alberta when we lived there - also loud ones with lots of lightning in England (my mum hid in cupboard under the stairs)! Emoticon emoticon-56
vanislander: Very unusual - we usually have very minor ones - few rumbles & not often fork lightning
AussieAl: Are thunderstorms unusual there?
vanislander: Just glad that no wildfires started
vanislander: No - I had a headache - took a pill & tried to get back to sleep, but it was very noisy and right overhead for much of the time Emoticon emoticon-18
AussieAl: Nice one. Did you hide under the bed? Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: We had a nasty thunder/lightning storm here from around 3 am for a couple of hours. The worst we've ever experienced since living here
vanislander: 13:11 so you get your crown back Emoticon emoticon-26
vanislander: In fact, read your time in reverse!
vanislander: Emoticon emoticon-31 - I have the same numbers in my time - but different order!
Bruce: running about 1/2 download speed and .5 Mbs up no wonder I can't stream

RB2sMom: Galahs are here

RB2sMom: Usually things improve with more providers, but I guess if they are all bad, hard to choose Emoticon emoticon-20
Bruce: seed time
Bruce: we have lots of providers but only the same c**p
RB2sMom: Yes, you need competition like they have here, when several other companies moved in, the service improved and the prices lowered
Bruce: more phone calls today
Bruce: Dang NBN not fit for purpose
RB2sMom: Yes, offline again
Bruce: yes i'm struggling to even stream
RB2sMom: Yes, I see, baby sea eagles on cam right now

RB2sMom: Had to refresh to get the cam, yes buffering still
Bruce: nearly Kooka time brb
Bruce: cat 1 is not so bad.....but
RB2sMom: Yes Terri is really in the path, should be a Cat 1 then
Bruce: ohh dear stay safe RB and terri
RB2sMom: Hurricane time here again....Chat image
Bruce: it's the NBN playing up
Bruce: I just lowered the speed and resolution it may help with buffering
RB2sMom: Yikes, what is going on?
Bruce: so the cam wont stream

New Name, New Look, Same Friends and Community.

By Rick | September 15, 2019 |
Posted in

It has been a long time since we started as Backyard Galah Cam back in 2010. We have made many friends and seen people come and go, some people who have passed away are dearly missed but are remembered in our hearts, as ever. We realised last year that it was time for the next chapter to our story and that was to create something fresh and exciting, but due to life taking hold we weren’t able to get to work on it.

If people are looking for wildlife webcams in Australia, “Australian Bird Cams” would be better for this. The new site is a work in progress, we have…
