I just spoke to Bristol Zoo on the phone, apparently the gorillas are let out at 9am (local time), but the camera only covers a small part of the island enclosure, so you'll have to be lucky - although zoo volunteers do move the camera.
Feeding time is 12.30pm (local time), so you may have a good chance of seeing them around then.
For those with slower connections, I added links to each individual cam. You might also want to refresh the page and/or wait a few minutes if the cams stop working, or try the links instead. The embedded cams work fine with IE8's zoom feature, and possibly other browsers too.
that's pretty damn cool, IMO. we have eagle cams here (because as you may know, the bald eagle is our nation's pet bird) but the cams are so few and far between that they are almost not worth the effort to watch.
I can see the gorillas on it right now, and that's pretty damn cool to me. I'll check back in later and see if they do something more exciting than watch the rain...

I was watching them at like 4 or 5am this morning while I was in the chatroom. Had screens moved around so I could see most of both.
At that time of the morning, the gorillas are like crack. Moving a little, and you are just too burnt or tired to look away. You hope they will do something, but they are like "Truman". No clue anyone is even looking in on them.
One guy, 2 wives, bunch of kids and no job. Guess like some people he got tired of sex with even them. Put him in a shoe shop, and he's Al Bundy in Utah.

According to Bristol Zoo's website, there are now a total of 6 gorillas there, since Kera (now just 5) joined Jock's family just under a year ago. The youngest is Jock's and Salome's son Komale, age 2 and a half.
I for one find primates fascinating, especially the great apes, although in a wild habitat they display more cultural behavior (yes, apes have basic culture).
These captive gorillas don't do much though other than roam about, play, eat and sleep. It would be interesting if they were trained in some simple tasks, as other apes have been (one orangutan on YouTube even learned to clean its enclosure after imitating its keepers), which might also make things less boring for them.
