Lussi05 here is the link to the topic about the "Spot" year.

Health warning - there are more than 200 pages!
I think we had to wait for them to settle down, once the eggs arrived.

In 2009, Eha laid the first egg on April 21 (late afternoon), so I think there is still time here.

I had not the time to constantly watch the nests yesterday as I had my daughter and her boyfriend over for Easter brunch, I sneaked a peek from time to time and also heard eagles calling (was the form BS nest I guess), but I don't think that I saw anybody on this nest yesterday. :puzzled:

Eha also laid the second egg on 26th of April and if now she laids only one egg it will be much better than two.

:unsure: *Sigh* Nobody here . . . such a lovely nest, too. I hate to see it empty & abandoned (apparently).

:puzzled: :cry: :cry: Why did they abandon this nest? Could they have another in the area? Sometimes I think I hear them in the distance. And once in a while (but seldom) they show up here.

Some pictures I made on 27 April. The male, Koit, appeared suddenly with a lizard in his beak. He looked around as if wondering where Eha was, dropped the lizard down for a moment, then picked it up again & flew off to the right side of screen, as if he had remembered where an alternative nest is located where she would be. So I think they do have another nest nearby that they preferred for some reason.

Urmas, do the LSEs make secondary nests & then choose one to use when egg-laying is close to happening?

We have no such knowledge, that they build up several nests (though exceptions could happen, like everywhere). But there is a lot to investigate in their behavior...
6:08 (probably) Koit arrived to nest with a bill full of dry grass, arranged that, jumped on branch, preened and left 6:13

April 29

Eha (I think) arrived with a branch around 7 AM

Image

She tested the nest bowl for a brief time

Then she went to the branch and flew off. The whole visit was about 3 minutes.

This seems a little dangerous as eagles have been here recently.
