20:03 I think its Madis on the nest..?
I think so, macdoum, but I´m still just sure when I see the ring... Fortunately somebody ringed the male bird. :nod:
The fish delivery was at 19:31, Piret left the nest with the prey and Madis sat down. I closed the cam at 19:34, and I don´t know if there was a change since than.

By the way (b.h-p has mentioned it before), it´s interesting how fast things happen at all the nests - Madis was visible in the background at 19.31:42, he landed at the nest 19:31:49, Piret got the fish at 19:31:57 and left at 19:32:08. She was out of sight 19:32:09!

Pontu documentation:
One osprey in the same position from 19:34 when I closed the cam after the fish delivery until 20:17. http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -20-17.jpg
20:18: Either Madis changed the positition or Piret came back http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -20-18.jpg

:laugh: Not anymore, Piret lands from the cam in the nest.

Edit: and I thought that branch was gone, but Piret is busy with it again.

Just good fortune - I pressed the "record" button some seconds before and took the pics from the video... :blush:

Edit: Maybe this tool can help us to identify the prey in the nest? :book:

I have to get time for having a record programme and learning how it works - it´s frustrating to try to hit the buttom at the right time and get time to get rid of the copied, then a new try with the buttom and................... and in the end to see that all failed - - - but another day

Thanks, macdoum and Mr. macdoum :wave: . Quite possibly - I think Urmas wrote fishponds are not far away. Maybe trouts and carps come from there? :shake:

In the WtE database is link about ospreys & fishponds - maybe interesting?

The impact of the White-tailed Eagle Haliaeetus albicilla and the Osprey Pandion haliaetus on Estonian Common Carp Cyprinus carpio production: How large is the economic loss?

"Protected bird species have been suspected to be a cause of a significant economic loss at Estonian fish farms, but its extent has remained unexplored. We counted the number of White-tailed Eagles and Ospreys, and the quantity of fish they take, and analysed the economic loss in five carp farms in 2001/2004."

The article, written by Joosep Tuvi and Ülo Väli, is available at Estonian Academy Publishers. Click here to find it: http://www.kirj.ee/11119/

Edit: short time, but heavy rain
I am just getting caught up with this forum. What a great picture, Jopie! It really shows the sense of stormy motion when the rain fell.
