This is the nest of Black Stork pair Tiina and Tiit.
It is situated in Läänemaa, western Estonia. The nest is known to us since 2009; then three chicks grew up there. The 2010 nesting failed; in July there were only egg shells under the nest. 2011 year four young grew up in the nest; we could watch, with somewhat varying success, their growth. 2012 there were four eggs, three hatched. One injured its beak and had to be taken out of the nest to the veterinary hospital. Unfortunately all attempts to help the storklet failed. Local farmers know the nest site already from the Soviet kolkhoz period: then the nest was a few hundred metres away. The nest is quite far from roads, about 2 kilometres as the crow flies.

Facts about the 2013 season:

Tiit arrived on the nest first, on April 16
Tiina arrived on April 18.

5 eggs were laid:

April 21, 23, 25, 27 and 29

Breeding time is (according to Wikipedia) 34 to 38 days and starts usually after the second egg, so hatch watch could be starting around May 27


Two chicks hatched on Sunday, May 26
Three eggs were apparently not fertilized and did not hatch.

June 6: The two storklets were named Liina and Miiko

June 30: The two storklets received their rings from Urmas: 712 L and 712 M



Wikipedia in English: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Stork
The German Wikipedia article has more information: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarzstorch

We have five eggs this year, which is a lot. That's why a word of caution is necessary. Storks practise, if they feel not all chicks can grow up, Filial infanticide - please be prepared!

Great work, Felis.

I shall keep the volume UP and then might hear the first arrival. The snow looks to be untouched.

laranjeiras, this is the correct link . We are both in UK, and this one works for me.

I think that the link in the first post is an error, or an old one.

Thanks a lot for the nice introduction and the pictures of the nest from Tiit and Tiina.
Now let's hope the Black storks will return safe and healthy to the nest.

I have forgotten a blank, but I think at the moment the JW stream does not work? At least I can't open it, but the VLC link works.

Thanks, but like with the Alutaguse cam, I have not installed the cam, just made the introduction :blush:
