Last week (not this one just gone, the one before) I was a bit under the weather so spent quite a bit of ‘alone’ time pottering around just ‘looking’ at things on the net. The Golfer and I enjoy webcams – looking at and seeing what is going on (in real time) in other parts of the world so I was viewing some of our favourites when I discovered a ‘new one’. The company that operates this new webcam also has others located in cruise ship ports – we often turn these on at the weekends to get our cruise fix which keeps us going until the time of our next sailing 🙂
Anyway this is the one I found:-
Welcome to the NEW JERSEY WILDLIFE CAM
A 24/7 live streaming HD-quality Internet video broadcast produced by PTZtv.
Take a virtual field trip on your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone and join us for some great views of the local wildlife in the State of New Jersey, USA.
You will see many deer — bucks, does, fawns — plus an assortment of squirrels, birds, raccoons, foxes and more.
Whatever your wildlife interests, we hope you find something interesting to watch.
Now these photos are screen shots from my iPad so not exactly the best, however they do give you an idea of what can be seen. The advertising (a necessary evil) on the side bars is relevant to Australia (blame it on those cookies) I suppose others would get some relevant to their own country – there is a little spot with the current temperature in the park which can be interesting at times! Our day time is their night time so when we have been sweltering it has been rather cool there to say the least 🙂
Oh, and don’t let the times on these s/shots confuse you – the time at the top was our local time and that on the black border the local time in New Jersey; we are 16 hours in front so have to either tune in really early or really late to see daytime vision.
It does give you an idea of how many deer drop by for something to eat – is the young one in the first picture a bit wary of the squirrel? (who seems to want its fair share of the feed) or is it just the way it is standing?

The camera is one of those ‘wizz bang see in the dark type’ so you are able to see whoever comes to the feeding place during the night.
I have no idea what that little animal is on the ground
But I do know one of my North American readers will 🙂
If you are interested there is also a F/book page
where readers discuss all the wildlife they have seen on the screen.
It’s possible many of you are already aware of this little spot in a nature reserve where some feed is left for animals to graze on – now I’ve discovered it I’m hoping it’s not going to be one of those ‘time wasters’ we all talk about. So far it hasn’t been – it has been calming. A chance to sit with a drink and just be, not do.
Do have a look and see how you feel
You’ll get a better idea watching it in real time than from my s/shots lol
