In most of the videos taken at night I can't see anything but a dark grey pixel soup.
I'm not sure how to classify videos like the one above. 8 'no's or 7 'unsure's ?

I'll have to run this one by Susan. For now I'd mark them as unsure (because it's pretty unsure if anything is going on or not).

I agree, the video´s aren´t usefull, so the video´s can be deleted from the server.

Folks,

We were testing cameras for the plovers and tern in 2012. The lighting for some of them is inadequate for viewing based on the type of cameras we used and the distance we had to place cameras to be sure we fit within our permit requirements for studying the birds. We should consider these camera failures and unable to be classified. Thanks for pointing this out.

Cheers,
Susan

I'll add an option for this on the video page.
