Black Stork webcam in Latvia
Black Stork webcam nest is located in Zemgale, in region between towns of Jaunjelgava and Jēkabpils and village of Ērberģe. Nest tree is an oak, situated on the bank of small river in an old growth forest. Nest is known for a short time – it was found in year 2013, more exact information about its inhabitants was found out one year later, when two youngsters were raised in it. Observations done near the nest indicated that both of the adults were not ringed, therefore their origin was not known.
This year birds arrived in the nest already at the end of March, when started the building works, supplying the nest crown with new branches and lining the nest bowl in a way typical to this species – with mosses. The same as last year, both adults are not ringed.
Installing and maintaining of this webcam system was supported by LMT (data transfer), Mikrotik (4G routers), LatRosTrans (financial support) and EENET (server in Estonia). Jānis Rudzītis (system configuration), Jānis Kažotnieks, Māris Strazds and Torben Langer assisted during the installation works.
