:redface: Something happened to the webcam or the structure it is attached to and it must have moved in one direction or another. That threw out all the pre-programmed positions of the camera! So the webcam thinks it is looking at the waterhole but in the mean time it is aiming into the bush!

Apologies for that! I'll ask our colleagues at Orpen to check the brackets, etc. and then I'll re-program it.

Thanks for your patience!

The Orpen webcam is fine again! It was indeed not one of our four legged friends who moved the webcam. It just needed a few reboots to fix the software glitch on the software of the camera guiding it to all the pre-programmed positions.

Happy camming!
