19.54

Piret is dragging that large branch back and forth, she doesn't seem to get it where she wanted it to be.
I wonder :puzzled: do they ever throw it out off the nest again if it doesn't fit somewhere?

19:55 Madis arrived “empty-handed”
Image

Maybe he saw the problem
Image

Piret “attacked” the branch once more before she sat down again
Image

Now the male tried his luck, but rather halfhearted. Piret watched him
Image

19:57 Madis left the nest

Nice pictures Maertha, especially the one where Madis is looking very interested in what Piret is doing.

Thanks, jopie. Probably you mean the fifth (19:56:00)? In the second last picture (19:57:31) Madis is working and Piret is watching him.

22:31 Piret left the nest
22:32 Rustling from "upstairs"

Few glimse from today

9.46 Madis made a short visit at nest - the later very annoying twig in nest is new since last evening

Image

22.33 and Pirets return after having been outside nest to shake waterdrops of. She was also the one I saw last before dark
Image

15.07

Strange, Madis flies away, leaving the eggs alone.

Edit: I understand now: Piret was already on the cam and now on the eggs again. I am doubting if it is Piret :puzzled: Must be Madis, who flew away and returned right away :puzzled: I am totally confused now :slap:

Looks like she has thrown it overboard, at least it is far away from the nestbowl now.

Piret towards the cam.

Eggs in an unusual position: 1 apart from the other two, and the other two are on top of each other.

18:49 I opened the cam, one bird on the eggs
19:31 The eagle gets up, it´s Piret (no ring). She stretches her wings. Some greeting calls/chirping, a big bird is visible in the approach path in the background: Madis arrives a moment later with a large, headless fish.
Piret takes it and leaves the nest with it (see also the video above)
