Hi folks -

Ken has given my a couple of updates, and I've been remiss and haven't posted them.

The trouble started when a sea otter bit through the protective cover over the wiring for the cam, which allowed water into the cam housing.

Ken pulled the cam, took everything home, took it apart, dried everything out, put it back together, tested the cam - and amazingly, it worked!

He put the cam back in the waterproof housing and did everything he could to seal the connections and the wiring - but first the cam fogged up inside the cover - and then water began seeping in.

He has again removed the cam, and is hoping to be able to install a replacement before too long.

The folks at the hatchery have made a nice support for the new cam, and with a bit of luck it will soon provide a great view of the salmon and other fish (and occasional ducks and apparently sea otters) that pass by.
