The webcams are online displaying live images following a daily schedule from dawn until dusk.
The cameras nominally update the image every 2 seconds (If using Firefox, you may need to reload current page (Ctrl+F5) manually for this to work). Their ability to maintain this update frequency is dependent upon the quality of the connection from your browser to the website. If you view over a high speed broadband connection you will see regular updates. On the other hand if you view over a poor 3G connection from mobile or tablet you will miss updates or in the worst case see no updates at all.
We see some flare on the lens when the sun is full-on from the east and south west.
In strong easterly weather conditions the North-East view camera can be affected by sea salt spray which distorts the view.
