View of the Osprey Platform

The Friends of Sherwood Island State Park purchased two Axis 211A web cameras that began operating in July 2010.  One of them faces the shore. One focuses on the osprey platform in the salt marsh behind the center.

Note: If you are unable to see the video stream, one of two things may be occurring: If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your browser, you may need to install AXIS Media Control to enable streaming video in IE. If prompted to install AXIS Media and/or Active X, you must answer yes to allow installation and install the plug-in before being able to view the webcam. If IE gives you trouble, please consider using another browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox). The webcam supports a maximum of 20 simultaneous viewers. If traffic is heavy, you may have to come back another time.
If you encounter any viewing problems, please contact
