Iberian Wild Boar Cam

Post  mangolink on Sat May 12, 2012 12:50 am

Hi

Our Live streaming cam is situated on the outskirts of the village of Pla de Corrals, Valencia Province, Spain. Although very close to the village our camera catches the amazing night life.

Each evening the first to arrive in daylight is our resident vixen. This is followed by two wild boar sows and their eight piglets. Watch these youngsters grow in the coming months. The interaction between the sows and the piglets is fascinating with the sows tossing the piglets out of the way. Later in the evening male wild boars will visit to take a mud bath.

To see this cam Google "mangolink webcam"

I've tried searching on Ustream for the Cam. but cant find it. Our site does not allow new members to post links untill they have been members for 7 days. You can then copy, and post a link to your cam to us. Hope that helps

Thanks for looking for our cam on the net. We were on Ustream, it kept dropping our cam and the advertisements are over the top. I think the massive interest in the Decorah Eagle cam must be putting a strain on their server. If you Google "Mangolink" you will find our web page and look for web cams.

I will put up a link of our web cam on the forum in 7 days

Hi Mangolink/Chris

Welcome to WAA. had a look for your cam early this morning and found it on ustream, it said it was offline but it was streaming, so not sure if that was a video playing or it was actually streaming. I did get a couple of shots of the Boar family so I will post them and also the link to the cam.
Hopefully you will join in with the forum even if it is just comments and pictures on this thread but there may be other threads that you are interested in.
Good to have you here, enjoy the forum.

Thanks Ronnie for the help with the link. Just had a look, and got a couple of shots, are these Sows or piglets Chris




Do you have separate names for them ? or the family groups. We now have Wild Boar in some of the forests in the UK. As LW said please do have a look around the Forum to find other things that might interest you, and please feel free to post comments on them

Post  mangolink on Sat May 12, 2012 11:56 pm

Hi

Thanks for looking at the cam. Those pictures are of two young males. They are on camera now. Earlier this evening the sows were there and their piglets.

We have been watching them for several weeks. There two sows and eight piglets (its surprising there have been no losses) there are two young boars and two solitary adult boars. Around the village there are many more other groups. If you put Els Corrals in Google earth you will see the village which is spread out with orange groves between the houses

We are still perfecting the image. The image on my tele is crystal clear. The image on the net is over exposed and a little fuzzy.

Every now and then it looks like its snowing. That is pollen

Best regards

Chris

Thanks for the info Chris wondered what it was blowing across the screen. It does take time to get the Cams working properly sometimes, but I know we've seen worse.

Iberian Wild Boar Cam

Post  mangolink on Sun May 13, 2012 9:18 pm

Hi

Tonight its very hot here and the sows keep taking a dip !!!

the occasional snowy picture we think is caused by pollen from nearby pine trees

the normal routine is for the sows to feed for 30 mins then suckle the piglets lying down

thanks for watching

Thanks Chris. Just had look, and the Sows are eating now, so they should be feeding the piglets soon. The pollen theory seems right from what i saw

What happens if the sows detect danger (village dogs) one sows stays with the piglets and the other sow goes into attack mode and will chase a dog(s) for hundred meters plus

They obviously have very strong mothering instincts Chris, the little Piglets are so very cute and would not withstand an attack from a dog.
The boars are feeding away very happily this evening aren't they. A question, when do you normally see the fox on this cam?

Wow Chris thats some team work between them. Do the Boars get involved with the family or is it just the Sows ?

The boars 8males) used to be on site for weeks in the evening hours, until the day the sows arrived with piglets and they took over the evening slot. The boars now only arrive after midnight. there is a pair and two solitary males. The boars don't assist the sows in protecting the piglets. As the boars move around the orange groves they set the dogs off barking so you can judge where there are.

on the fringe of this village there are several groups of wild boar and according to scientific literature wild boar are not territorial . But the group we are studying are clearly resident in this area which suggests there may be group territories

The fox (vixen) was on camera for weeks but has not been seen for the last two nights !!! She was not thin but not in good condition. her tail had no brush. watching the channel 4 urban fox. I wondered if she had mange but there were no bare patches. I have another waterhole where a dog fox drinks and he is a beauty. The foxes wont come to the camera when the boars are there and the boars are there many hours . I am going to put another camera on the other water hole with no feed . This will allow us to film the boars, foxes and cats drinking

That would be a long stop up to see the Boars then Chris, will have to do that at the weekend, it would be great to see them.
Thanks for all the background info, it's nice to know, it makes them all seem more familiar.

Shame about the little Vixen, I hope she is and returns. Sounds like she may have mange doesn't it.
Are you going to be streaming your new cam at the waterhole as well? i'm keeping my fingers crossed that you are, apart from seeing them all drinking I would love to see the Dog Fox.
