(I think Maertha or Ump posted this link from Arrkive elsewhere on the forum)

:2thumbsup: Good
Yes, I posted this video here recently. I like ARKive very much, because in my opinion it´s one the most beautiful places in the web - very educational, very nice images and videos of endangered species.

About Arkive: "Wildlife films and photos are vital weapons in the battle to save the world's endangered species from the brink of extinction.
So with the help of the world’s best filmmakers, photographers, conservationists and scientists, ARKive is creating the ultimate multimedia guide to the world's endangered animals, plants and fungi."

May 30

8.38

:puzzled: At first Piret agrees Madis can go on the eggs, but doesn't leave herself. Stands very close to Madis and starts changings sticks and nestmaterial, talking all the while. At last Madis flies away.

14.24 Piret returned to nest, didn´t see if she brought anything with her. Madis left

perhaps she brought the dark clump of something in front of her right leg it wasn´t in nest before

Nest was empty for a few minutes, Piret (or was it Madis :puzzled: ) took of for a short flight and then came back and sat down on the eggs again.

Millie wrote:So pleased that Madis continues to look after Piret. Osprey have specil talons as you say for carrying fish. There is a Welsh website which is very informative and gives a really good insight into the lives of Ospreys. It is called the "Dyfi Osprey Project" If you google that you should find it. I have learned a lot from this site. Their resident Osprey are called Monty and Nora.

Hello Folks.. :wave:

I've enjoyed everyone's post's on all the beautiful birds ob this forum. Many Thanks.

I've been watching Nora and Monty's nest
and their new osplets. This is the url...

It's a beautiful to watch so many osprey's from around the globe. :headroll:

20:37 One bird on the eggs, quite strong wind
21:45 The eagle gets up for some seconds, I saw no ring: Piret
21:57 I closed the cam, nothing happened. The female sat on the eggs all the time except for some seconds and was very attentive. The wind has died down

Welcome, Doc, and thank you for the url.
I have seen Springwatch this evening, and have come here to ask if members can please say how much time passes from the first pipping of an egg until the chick is out of the shell. BBC asked if viewers could give them the information.
The link you gave us shows that BBC needs to look more closely at the Dyfi site!
I couldn't get the webcam to load but it must be a fantastic view of the nest when it is live.

Jo, before the cam went live the Dyfi Project posted a number of videos (and hopefully will continue) - here is one showing the area, one of the ospreys eating a fish, and two chicks hatching nearly at the same time. They may have exact timing, my impression is that it happened over the course of 24 hours or less.
