I have been considering for a while setting up a webcam on this blog, so visitors can see the donkeys live. I am hoping to have the webcam installed on the donkey field in February. Ideally, the camera will be running live in daylight hours so Matilde, Rubi, Morris and Aitana can be seen during their everyday activities and you can watch what they get up to when I am at work.
Maybe you will be able to catch them on camera doing something very silly, and I will miss it because I am at work. Then you can write and tell me in the comments what silliness you have seen. The view of the field will be from under the fig tree, where the camera will be sited in a place that gives the best all-round view of the donkeys, and they are only out of sight when on the left of camera in the corner of the field by the lemon tree. Here’s a still shot preview of the camera position, with the Puig Campana mountain above Finestrat providing a spectacular back drop.
I will keep you updated on the progress of this project. Meanwhile, here is a taster: three of the videos captured on the field in the past years:
