Well, I have to admit it’s a week late but I will be live streaming from RSPB Rainham Marshes tomorrow at 11.00am, with Howard Vaughan. We’ll be broadcasting from the Marshland Discovery Zone (known locally as the MDZ) about the artificial sandbank, kingfishers and anything else that’s about. Here’s the link/location: https://www.youtube.com/user/psamuels31/live
As from 6th March I shall be streaming live from RSPB Rainham Marshes each month. Each stream will clarify what any visitor is likely to see that month as well as look at “what’s through the lens” that day. Join us at: https://www.youtube.com/user/psamuels31/live around 11.00am
More details nearer the time on: @wildlifefilming on Twitter and https://www.facebook.com/PJSFilmsLondon/

Preparations for live-streaming are now almost complete and I hope to be doing a test session (possibly from Rainham Marshes) on Wednesday 10th Jan. I’m using the software encoder OBS in conjunction with an Elgato Cam-Link HDMI capture device and two cameras. At the moment my small laptop can’t cope with the usb bandwidth for two Cam-Links so one camera will be a normal usb webcam. The other is my A7s2. The more difficult aspect is balancing the audio using the A7s2 microphone for both camera views but I think I’ve got that worked out now using OBS. We shall see! I’m using a 4G up-link. (The force is strong, I think).
