i had the camera off till 10.34 while uploading videos. it's been empty since that...

if i counted right the buzzard came to the nest altogether 7 times this morning! and stayed for about 35 minutes altogether. together with the visit which b.h-p saw it's 8 visits. that's a lot compared to the previous days (maybe i exaggerated its diligence a bit; this is about two-three days' work, but the day is young!)

at 11.35 the other (bigger?) buzzard arrived, too.

- is it the smaller male who comes here frequently to do nest arrangemants and the female come every now and then to see what he has done? or is it vice versa?? :puzzled:
Image

the first left at 11.35 and the second stayed on the right branch for a while more. it left at 11.37.

after that there was some meouwing from the sky...

a buzzard came to the nest at 11.54. it was kind of crawling in from the right..? i wonder whether it was on the right side on a branch somewhere...
yes: it came a minute earlier to the right side of the picture.

i had the volume down because of the wind so i did not notice it. :D

i've recorded (and re-recorded some as "editing") so many videos that i'm a bit worried that i'll get confused... :rotf:
The arrival at 9:26. Sorry if my sentence was a bit imprecise. Now I´m back at home and saw that you have added a video to your posting at this time meanwhile – it´s exactely the same scene which I have recorded, so there´s no need to post my video.

By the way: thanks for your buzzard documentation. :2thumbsup:

the buzzards or one of them was so busy this morning that i had a hard time in writing notes and making recordings and taking pictures and uploading them here and there that i thought i'd make a bad mess about it. so it was a very good thing that you made a back-copy, maertha! :thumbs:

at 13.44 - 13.46 there was some meowing in the sky but no-one came down to the nest.

at 14.10 the other arrived. it seemed to be bigger and darker but i'm not sure.
Image

grey jumped in to the nest...
Image

and made a duck-dive. :laugh:
Image

Brown followed to the nest..
Image

Brown didn't stay long but the other (Grey) did. it was looking around for quite some time and left at 14.14.
