If you mean this, it was put up in 2019 and seems to have remained since then.

 

In 2019, the first glimpse of stuff being dropped off for the pier was 09:40 on 7th May. They did setup the longdrops in that area before then though, but I can't see anything pier related before then. Based on the fact they nearly didn't finish everything in 2019, I'd expect them to start earlier than that this year.

either that or chuck some extra labour at it ....it would also be easier second time around i would guess ...

Is that some kind of new signage towards the top of the Park field, on the Pennards side?

I wonder when we can expect the pier to start being built? That must be one of the earliest projects to start.

They were there in October 2020CD3A95C4-B7B6-45B1-935C-615E5ABDDD40.thumb.jpeg.e8ed398c46f05714f4e95b1a6d943479.jpeg

Was about to make that comment myself. Thousands  of three year old  turds marinated in gallons and gallons of well matured urine doesn’t bear thinking about.

Nothing compared to the thick perfume rising from the fields this week following the pumping of cow juice on them. Those fields don’t get that lush green colour from rain alone.

What do we think all those things are being dropped off in the Pyramid field? Too early for generators?

Not sure, but to my eyes they don't really look like generators.

My best guess is Elsan points? But I'm a long way from confident on that and could be wrong.

Here's my Javascript tool for retrieving webcam images, including stitching together the super high resolution images if they're available:

https://www.tievolu.co.uk/glasto/GlastoWebcamTool.html

Choose your date/time then click the image to download the highest resolution available in a new window. If the super high resolution image parts don't exist, or can't be downloaded for some reason, it downloads the "default" resolution instead.

Note: I can't be bothered to make it look nicer 😀

(I've had to use an open CORS proxy because the server responses for the older high resolution part images don't have the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header set. This seems to be an oversight, because recent snapshots have Access-Control-Allow-Origin set to allow all origins, as do the redirect URLs for the old images - but the response when retrieving the final URL does not. The CORS proxy is a bit of a fudge, and it's limited to 5 requests per second so it might not work properly sometimes.)

Anyone who lives in a rural area like we do is well aware of the stinky slurry spreading season.!   It was strange to see back in the fallow year of 2018 when we had a wee holiday in Pilton that the spring ground down to the JP was a field of cereal .   So different from seeing it full of tents.

this is particularly excellent for anyone wondering what time the campsites fill up / trying to persaude their mates the genuine necessity to set off that extra hour earlier

Yeah I was just doing this.

When it comes to some of the more popular campsites that are in shot:
-9am plenty
-10am should be able to find a bit of space here and there
-11am your gonna have to search and squeeze in
-Midday "How about that spot next to the longdrops?"

I've set up the webcam as an always upto date PC screensaver, bit clunky and I'm sure theres probably better ways of doing it - works for me though so though I'd post it in case its useful to anyone.

The screensaver I use is WPanorama from http://www.wpanorama.com/ and is freeware.  Its very good and pans the whole webcam image very smoothly.  Only real issue is that it works off a locally stored file rather than directly from the internet.  

So seperately I download the "https://live-image.panomax.com/cams/879/recent_full.jpg" file and then the screensaver uses that.

I do it automatically via a cron job on my QNAP Nas (instructions from https://wiki.qnap.com/wiki/Add_items_to_crontab ).

6-59/5 * * * * wget -q https://live-image.panomax.com/cams/879/recent_full.jpg -O /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Photos/Glastonbury/recent_full.jpg --no-check-certificate

Above works perfectly, the webcam seems to update every 5 mins with a small delay, so I download at 6 mins past the hours then 11/16 etc, the above cron job achieves that

On windows you could also use something like "https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/seqdownload.html" which is a small app that auto downloads a file multiple times.

Its nice that everytime my screensaver kicks in it displays the latest webcam image and pans the image.

Ideally I'd have a screensaver that would download from the url every time it activates and theres probably one out there but I couldn't find one.
