Only 12 photos today on Pontu. The season definitely comes to an end.
I am still collecting them, should somebody want to see what is going on or not going on. I am also looking, if I see something interesting, like bird visitors. :wave:
Hope Neli and her family have reached warmer places already, maybe a rest in Israel? :unsure:

Pontu says, cam did not turn on today at all! No pictures! :roll: But the nest is empty, no more storks!

Ame, if you want to see a bit of the season, I have all the Pontu pictures collected: http://s1127.photobucket.com/albums/l63 ... otos/Kurg/

In Mejuba I just finished with July, August will be next.

Felis, you are doing a great job! We never know what next season will bring and it is good to know that this season is safely stored in Mejuba. Thanks.

Thanks Jo! I find it also important to have the pictures stored for people who would like to use them for work or just look at them and remember a great time with the storks! And the thanks also go to Ame, who let me know about Pontu and how to collect them! :wave:

Pontu cam remained off today as well, no news from the stork wood!

The camera had pictures again the last two days, but the nest is empty, the leaves are falling. Today it has not yet started.

19:34, Whichever bird claims this nest next spring - has lots of clean-up to do ! A raven was closeby.

Urmas tells us that Black Stork Camera 2 closes for the season, article HERE.
There is some small technical problem with the article images; I can see the ringing day image with IE in the Estonian version.

Many thanks to Urmas and his team, and Looduskalender! :bow: :bow: :bow:

And I truly don't think that the technical action must be invisible - after all, it is part of life and the show. It makes our experiences more real and richer too!

Once more, thank you! And the best of luck to Üks, Kaks, Kolm, Neli and Tiina and Tiit.

I saw the Estonian article in the afternoon already (I am sitting sick at home) and just saw the translation by Liis :blush: and saw I got a special mention there! If I could be of help to somebody I am happy! Otherwise, the praise and thanks go to Urmas and his team and Looduskalender for the work they had, especially since the cam did not work as maintenance-free as hoped! I also thank for such an incredible experience! It was the first time I was able to watch and it really hooked me!
My thoughts and wishes travel with Tiina, Tiit, Üks, Kaks, Kolme (Johanna) and Neli, have a safe trip, come back again and if you pass through Israel, make sure to show your rings to Carsten Rohde, who travelled there to watch and photograph storks.
Wind under your wings - beloved birds! :wave:

I agree with Liis - I don't think that maintenance and technical work should be "behind the scenes" The work that is needed is part of the story for us. We would like to know who does what!

I appreciate that not all workers want to be webcam stars or have such public exposure, so they can just "Ooops" and disconnect the cable, or something!

I agree to all that :shake: !

As this year was a great success for breeding and fledging of at last 4 new BS siblings, amongst the eyes of unnumerous "Storkaholics", we only can hope for another good year in 2012. I'd like to stress: hopefully in the SAME nest(s) as before - so that Urmas & his fellows won't have more work than neccessary to observe the known nesting sites and to re-install technical equpiment...
The tendencies of BS appearing in Estonia are lightly decreasing, as I lately read - why ever. But not to forget the development in Latvia which is more positively!

Thank you, Jo, just a touch of cold, and today I was at work again. :wave:

I am glad you are better, Felis. And I also want to say that I really enjoyed seeing the stork family over the summer months. I hope to see them or a similar family again next year.
