RSPB Mull of Galloway, Near Stranraer
Client: Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)
Date: April 2012

The Mull of Galloway is the most southerly tip of Scotland and consists of a very long and thin peninsula jutting out into the Irish Sea. The cliffs there are one of the most exposed parts of coastline in the UK and surrounded turbulent water that provides plentiful food for the extensive seabird colonies that breed there. Only the most able people can make there way down the steep and winding path down from the lighthouse to the foghorn where viewing of the colonies is possible and this is one of the reasons that the RSPB wanted to have live camera feeds to their visitor centre.


  RSPB Leighton Moss, Lancashire
Client: Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)
Date: March 2012

The RSPB’s Leighton Moss reserve is located between the M6 Motorway and Morecombe bay and is one North West England’s hidden gems. The site covers a large
area of reed beds with well maintained hides overlooking scrapes where a variety of birds come to feed and roost throughout the year. As part of a long term project the reserve’s management team have been improving the facilities and wanted to introduce remote
control cameras to enable close up views of the wildlife on the reserve and to enable these live images to be streamed to the Internet and also to the popular cafe.

Client: Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)
Date: February 2011

The Bempton Cliffs reserve is on the east coast of Yorkshire just north of Bridlington. At well over 100 metres high in places the chalk white cliffs are a commanding and exposed feature of Britain’s coastline. At the height of the season the cliffs are

  RSPB Saltholme - Middlesbrough
Client: Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)
Date: February 09

Outersight designed a system that incorporated some advanced remote observation
systems linked to some cutting edge live TV and internet streaming techniques that offered ease of use, reliability and future upgrade potential.  The system can be used to record and stream live to the internet providing the ability for the reserve to ‘webcast’ it’s own version of the BBC’s ‘Springwatch’.

  Stromness – Orkney - Scotland
Client: EMEC European Marine Energy Research Centre
Date: August 2008

EMEC approached Outersight to design long range, high resolution observation system that would enable the identification of a seabird at a distance of up to 3 kilometres. Automated archiving was also to be provided to enable a record of activity within the test
range through out the year. The system would also have to cope with some of the strongest winds and harshest weather of any coastal location in Europe.


  Creetown Peregrine
Client: Creetown Heritage Museum
Date: May 2006

The Creetown Heritage Museum contacted Outersight wanting to have a remote controlled camera on a Peregrine Falcon nest site in a quarry with viewing facilities located in the museum in Creetown in the Southwest of Scotland. A secondary aim was to receive live images from the Osprey Camera at Wigtown 5 KM over the water to the west.


  Razende Bol Sandbank – Texel - Netherlands
Client: IMARES (Institute for Marine Resources & Ecosystem Studies)
Date: July 2008

IMARES was tasked with assessing if the activity at the nearby military shooting range had any effect on the wildlife on the sandbank. For safety reasons the area has to be evacuated before any firing takes place so the traditional field observation techniques were impossible. IMARES were aware of Outersight’s other marine installations and turned to us to devise a suitable remote observation solution. The main requirements were transmission of still and live video images to the research base with remote control of the camera. Year round operation of the system was also required.


  Wat Tyler Country Park, Basildon, Essex
Client: RSPB
Date: March 2006

The RSPB asked Outersight to design and install a multi camera remote observation system to allow visitors to the RSPB Visitor Centre at Wat Tyler Country Park to view the various species of bird that frequent the nearby wetlands area.
After surveying the site and discussing the needs of the RSPB we designed a comprehensive system covering several areas of the park that could be installed in phases.


  Skomer Island Cameras
Client: The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales
Date: Summer 2007

The Island of Skomer is managed by the WTSWW and as a key part of The
Skomer Island Heritage Experience Project (a £3.2 million Project supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund, Tubney Charitable Trust and the CCW) it was proposed that a network of cameras would be installed on the island; viewed and controlled from a new visitor centre on the mainland.


  Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve & Welsh Wildlife Centre
Client: The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales
Date: October 2006

The Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve and Welsh Wildlife Centre is located a few miles inland from Cardigan on the West coast of Wales. As part of an extensive upgrade of
the interpretive facilities at the WWC the WTSWW wanted to make use of remote controlled cameras to open up previously inaccessible areas of the reserve to visitors and help increase awareness of the stunning wildlife in the area and the Herd of Water Buffalo that are used to manage the marsh.
