In the Ilmatsalu area there are always white-tailed eagles moving around, but good that a ringed bird came to show itself in camera view – a nice full-grown bird that probably is nesting not far away.
 
The ospreys are not far away either, on the frame of the Latvian artificial nest the new site was explored on Saturday.

Juvenile osprey Kenno in the „perching tree“
 
On Saturday all was silent in camera view, no shrill osprey calls. Juveniles Kaido and Kenno are gone with father Ilmar. Wind in your wings, friends, and until new meetings! You have rings, by them you and your activities can be known  …
 
When the ospreys had left others came to...

6.57 Kenno  lands in the nest
 
Our camera ospreys no longer live a nest life but a nest neighbourhood life. It is early autumn weather but amazingly beautiful and it seems that the ospreys are in no hurry to go anywhere. For quite long already nights are no longer spent in the nest but in trees in the surroundings, in morning a visit in front of the camera is made from habit. The voices of the young birds are heard...

The autumn month is nearly here and schools start. Adult Ilmar has spoilt his offspring. The young ospreys beg food, but, dear young friends, who is learning to fish for you? Nest life will not last for much longer; hunger will have to do its work, soon they will have to manage on their own in life ... In the video the younger one, Kenno, gets the fish.

Young ospreys Kaido and Kenno
 
The juveniles still spend the night in the nest and even in daytime it is a good place to beg food from the adults in. And when you don’t want to share the fish with your brother, you fly with the prey to the dried spruce behind the nest. The clever ravens have realised that it is easy to take over a prey from the young ospreys. At about eight in the morning such an event could be seen and heard. The distance is too great for a video recording to show understandably what is happening.

Precisely so it is when the male reaches the nest with prey and calls on the juveniles. The quicker gets the fish and in case the belly gets filled up the leftovers go to the next one.
 
In the morning mother Irma also came to the nest with fish.

Adult Ilmar feeds the younger generation lavishly – at least two fishes per day for each young osprey.
 
The water level in our water bodies is low; with the rains last week the ditch bottoms are „moist“. In such circumstances fishing is pure pleasure, compared to in muddy river waters overflowing with rains. The ospreys have experienced such years too, fish are nearly impossible to find then.

When we tried to catch osprey Ilmar three weeks ago in order to relieve him of the old, not working transmitter on his back, it did not succeed. Now, in the night of August 9th (with +24 degrees of warmth outdoors) we prepared a new attempt and managed to attract Ilmar into the net. How this was done in principle can be seen in Jürgen’s photos in the forum.
