Restarting the system for surveillance of the white-tailed eagle nest
At the end of December 2016 maintenance works were carried out on the system for surveillance of the known white-tailed eagle nest near Kočevska Reka. Due to low sunlight the system setup had to be adjusted to minimize the amount of energy used by some of the features of the camera. The system was re-started and automatic movement of the photovoltaic panel in the direction of sunlight was again enabled.
As the amount of sunlight is low at this time of the year the system is not yet functioning fully. However, as the amount of sunlight will increase the system will gather enough energy to work throughout the day. Currently the most important feature is that the system automatically shuts down in bad weather and re-starts automatically again when sufficient sunlight is available.
