Larger spotted eagle Tõnn surprises us once more. The Scandinavian peninsula felt too small for him and neither did he find a mate there - now Tõnn tries his luck in Finland.
Excerpt from the migration map, data as of May 22
Finland is not the best place for finding a single greater spotted eagle lady either. Maybe he has to go to Karelia or Russia or return to Estonia ... We will see in due time.
Tõnn this winter in Spain
While the nesting birds with transmitters now are busy in their breeding areas and tracks cannot be viewed publicly, hybrid spotted eagle Luule has been staying in the southwestern corner of Latvia for the last week, and crane Ahja 2 spends his time in the southwestern corner of Belorussia, on the virgin lands at the Ukrainian border.
No more information has arrived about black stork Valdur after his migration-time stopping places in the Near East. Towards summer (when storklets are left on their own) we will probably be able to peer into his nest to see if Valdur is there or not.
