Well I cant think it is a bird although web cams can have some horrible latency to cause odd things to happen.... is it cgi or the beeb having a bit of fun? Nice spot anyway.

First guess would be bird, but it seems to be flying awfully fast and have a streched out appearence, more than I would think for a bird. It also kinda reminds me of the RODs. I don't know, I would say either bird or ROD(whatever they are).

if you were Escamillia, you would call it a "rod", and sell DVDs.

actually, it probably is a "rod" in the sense that it is an insect causing motion blur as it flies past a video camera.

That is pretty interesting actually.

The guy seems very patronizing though, almost like he's taking the piss a bit?

Or perhaps this is just the way the media treat this sort of thing...and we KNOW it is

Wow.
This is interesting.

Three words...
Star and flag



Hmm......

I say bird.

The motion capture on some web cams are horrible. So it would give a stretched out blurry appearance. It only seems fast becuase its flying from almost behind the camera forward. If they were truly serious about having people give their opinions about what it is then they would have posted the original video on their web page for better analysis.

I think it looks interesting whatever it turned outs to be. I`ve just watched it about ten times and will probably be having another look.

Two things intrigue me. Firstly you can see the traffic in the back ground moving normally, so if there was something happening because of the type of camera being used why is the effect happening in only one direction?

Secondly it looks to me, although this is more than likely a trick of the eyes, that the object swerves twice most visibly when it gets to the second bridge. I could certainly believe there was something controlling that but will happily concede it could be a camera artefact

Great find icarus78

Yea, I doubt it is even possible to get the original film or a better clip to analyze frame by frame,lol it is not even worth it anyways. It is likely a bird or insect as you said, although it does look similar to the "RODs", either way it really doesn't matter.

My question is what insect is that large enough to be visible on a webcam? And what insect is that bright? I don't see very many large white insects flying around often.

The bird explanation could be possible, but in my opinion it isn't a bird, it moves way too fast and has no similarities of a bird besides the fact that it flys.

I would say a bird. I think the BBC is aware of this as well, they are not that stupid. Probably, just using this as an example to make fun of "ufo's."

It is not a bird, nor a UFO. You can see through it as it is flying across the screen. May be a bottle rocket. Its a plane, its a bird, or Superman letting out gas (Ch3) that can streak across the sky faster than a speeding-silver bullet shape UFO. Good day people.

It has all the 'gut feeling' of being aa bird.

It's a Chinese balloon filled with swamp gas and a bird tied to it to make it go faster.

Serious, this is going too fast to be a bird. It could be a RC jet.

I know exactly what it is. You can clearly see that it is an unidentified white thing flying across the screen. What are you people blind.

Actually it looks a lot like the rod things. Those are insects though right?

That doesn't look like an insect and it appears to be flying to fast to be a bird.

My 2 cents

Ah! heck a doody I'll go with UFO...... was probably moving slower because it was "low" ..... usually when they move the regular speed it is to fast for us to see with our eyes or even catch with a camera.

Them little buggers are gettin" daring so early in the morn.


But then again it could be a BBbug or bird.

Wont really matter what is it. Even if it was a UFO, that will not be proved due to the low quality of the video.

Still, my opinion is that it is to much thin to be a a bird. But again, its a webcam, so cant say for sure.

It's a birth certificate!


Actually it's hard to tell without the scale of the thing.
If it's really close to the camera then it can easily be an insect which would be my guess ...
If it's far away, then it's going too fast to be a bird imo.

Very interesting ...

Prove it's authenticity!
You know it was moving too fast to be proven.

If it was a bird, then some questions remain:

why THIS bird, over any other bird that went past the webcam? Its not as if the BBC put a webcam up for the day and captured a 'UFO' on it, nor is it likely that no bird has ever flown past that screen in the months (or years) that backdrop has been used for this ident. We dont know how long this cam has been in place, either, but i wager its been a few years.

This is evidently the BBC's backdrop for their broadcast from this local station - this isnt a tiny webcam plugged into the back of a PC, either - they are probably using a remotely controlled Hi res digital camera of some kind attached to the roof of their broadcast station, dont forget - they could move it around if they want - particularly if there is something they wouldnt want you to see in the bckground (eg. a protest) or a road crash.

Im not saying it is a UFO, A bird, or whatever - as someone pointed out in another post - look at the speed and blurring in comparison to traffic and the definition of other objects in the screen.

Maybe its someone having a laugh with a an air-filled plastic rocket perhaps.


The BBC is investing in popular science programmes at the moment - 'Bang Goes the Theory' for example - dont be surprised if its a stunt for this programme or similar - not wishing to sound cynical.
