As an experiment I have looked an awfull lot of Punto pictures from the archive of the day through to see how much is to be “read” from these. A rough, with intervals of 1 hour, look during the day gave the impression that Piret was in nest the whole day – but looking further and then again with more narrow intervals another impression turned up……… This is what was caught – but I have probably missed something:
5.35 – 5.36 a shift from Piret to Madis
5.50 Piret was back again, they were both standing in nest for 2 minuts, first at 5.54 Piret covered the eggs and
5.55 Madis has left, Piret on eggs
8.57 empty nest, the shadow of one upstairs, who has left at 8.59
9.00 Madis in nest
9.01 Madis still on eggs, Piret at the nestrim perhaps arranging a twig she has brought?
9.02 Piret on eggs
10.06 the shadow of one upstairs and one in nest with the tail end towards cam. - it´s Madis, is to see one minut later
10.16 Piret is back to nest, Madis has left
10.22 still Piret in nest, she is looking as if Madis just has left. A new twig, birch? Is to see in the left side of the pic.
11.24 Piret still in nest, 11.25 the nest is empty, 11.26 Piret is back
11.50 Madis brought a fish for Piret
12.17 Madis still in nest, Piret in background flying back to nest
12.18 now Madis has left and Piret is working at the nestrim, perhaps she brought new nestmaterial?
13.18 Piret in nest, but away 13.19 & 13.20, and back again 13.21
13.52 still Piret in nest
13.53 & 13.54 nest is empty
13.56 – 14.00 Piret on nestrim, looking alert around
14.01 – 14.06 nest is empty
14.07 Madis on eggs
14.13 Madis on eggs and Piret standing at his side, 14.15 Piret now alone in nest on eggs
16.20 Madis is back - did he bring a fish, it may look so or ?
16.50 Piret back standing on nestrim and from 16.52 covering the eggs
17.53 & 17.54 empty nest
