This Black Stork nest is located in Karula National Park which is probably the best breeding area for Black Stork in Estonia nowadays. It was found in February 2016 by Eagle Club nest searching camp.

Important from ornitoligists

Urmas sent me a photograph of Ain Nurmla, seen at the Black Stork nest, during camera installation.

The WebCam is already working! :D http://pontu.eenet.ee/player/must-toonekurg.html

Is it only some kind of visual illusion but how on earth can a Black Stork lay some eggs on that nest? :shock:. They will likely fall down to ground? Was the nest in that state last year?

Hi, bonehead. The sloping nest does look to be at a worrying angle, but it was the same last year.
See Lucy's post on 6th. August 2016
viewtopic.php?p=493066#p493066

Maybe it is only one side of the nest that appears to be higher. I think that Karl seems to be standing on a flat area. What do you think?

Thanks Jo,
let´s hope you´re right. To me it seems however that the nest this year is in worse state?

But we´ll hope that Karl is a real Builder and he can fix this angle.

As Urmas has visited the nest recently, I have asked him for his opinion about it.

Thank you for opening this topic :2thumbsup: :loveshower:

Karl is on his way: He will come soon. I hope for a successful breeding season. :bow:

I'm sure, Karl will be able to make this nest safe for Kati and the little Storklets :thumbs:

This nest is quite difficult to fix anyhow, there is no such support for fixing sticks or something like that. We can't be sure if that nest survives this year, but it is probable. Let's look what happens in natural nest, like it is. We can install artificial nest nearby, but not sure if that is the best idea to realize. There is quite many big trees in that area and probably Karl and Kati can find new place for nest if needed. That is always risky to help something in natural conditions, all species survived up today, they should have ability to manage with that kind of problems. It may be not good idea to work against that ability or adaptation, mean not to weaken that somehow... Think it is a case of empirical feeling, what we decide being on place. But we can't decide according the fact there is the camera and thousands are looking.

Thank you, Urmas, for your opinion.
So we'll have to hope that all goes well and Karl is skilful at fortifying the nest. :rolleyes:

The main problem is the nest tree, not the nest itself. The tree is dead and may fall during the nearest storm.

It seems that Karl has turned back a bit

Hello all, :wave:
it's wonderful that there is again an Estonian Black Stork topic! Thank you to all who made it possible! :2thumbsup:
I wish to all that we will see good and happy events here. Indeed the very sloping nest and the old tree look not promising. Hardly to imagine that the storks can build a halfway horizontally ground level. Maybe it is better, they choose another breeding place. :rolleyes:

Nevertheless I look forward to see Karl and Kati soon in their homeland. It is so great that we can follow Karl on his way directly to the nesting place. This we had never before, didn't we?

Juta, I see Karl at the same position like your screenshot shows - over the marmara sea –, but without the double line. Double lines appear sometimes, when one pulls the button on the time line (scale) backwards and forwards, maybe several times. According to my experience the software has little problems with doing this, - but not always :-).
