When I enter in ACP I see this in the error log:
ReCAPTCHA connection error: Read timed out after 10 seconds

ReCAPTCHA is a third party service. The connection to their server failed. You have no control over this.

An alternative is to setup your own Q&A captcha:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> User Registration -> Enable CAPTCHA for Guests
