Ilmar's Nest

This is the first year that this osprey nest has a webcam.
Ilmar is a male Osprey from Estonia who received ring number U6 and a transmitter on 3.08.2012 (note: Ilmar's transmitter was removed and his ring changed in July 2013. His ring now is AF.)

Ilmar's mate (now named Irma by the forum posters) was also captured and ringed when Ilmar was. Her ring number is U5.

Ilmar's route south in the autumn of 2012 is shown in blue. He traveled to the west of Piret, whose route is shown in pink.

Ilmar's mate (now named Irma by the forum posters) was also captured and ringed when Ilmar was. Her ring number is U5.

Urmas wrote that Ilmar's nest from last season was unstable and dangerous, so it was rebuilt for this new season. Even with a dusting of snow, it looks very attractive!

April 2013. Ilmar's nest had attracted some young WTE and a duck, but viewers were beginning to wonder if a Ilmar's mate would ever arrive or, if not, whether an unattached female such as Piret (Madis' mate from 2012) might be attracted to the nest and settle in.
Urmas answered some of the questions we had.


Q. Did you rebuild Ilmar's rotten nest at the same place it was before or did you choose a new tree?
A. We built new nest about 30m of old one, old was almost fallen down and rotten fir did not have more branches to hold nest.

Q. Do you know how old Ilmar is?
A. Don't know, probably breeding third year (in the same nest site). He has no rings, if we caught him last year. Neither female.

Q. Did Ilmar breed successfully with his mate already last season? And the seasons before?
A. Yes they had two chicks, though a bit later as usual. Joosep ringed them, though it was dangerous, because of rotten tree. Before that in 2011 the nest was probably built, but we did check it after breeding season, so could be there were no chicks then.

Q. Anything you know about his last mate? How old, is she wearing rings?
A. Nothing more as no rings with her.

Q. How far is the distance between Ilmar's nest and Madis' nest?
Could it be possible that Piret meets Ilmar (at Ilmar's nest - for breeding)?

A. It's about 65 km, I don't think Piret will go to Ilmar's nest. Its too far maybe.

Q. It would be interesting to have information about the Osprey population in Tartumaa county, in order to estimate Ilmar’s chances to find a mate.
A. Not many in this area, but more at bigger lakes Vortsjärv in west and Peipsi in east. But migration is going on, so almost every day some Ospreys fly over the area (Finnish ones).

2013 Seasonal Summary

mid-April - young WTEs visit the nest
Urmas noted: The immature White-tailed Eagle in nest wearing the ring C550 is ringed by me 23.06.2010 about 5 km of the Ilmars nest as single chick in nest. C550 has been observed and photographed in the area also before during all those years.

April 15-The WTE were followed by a visiting, unringed osprey.

April 22- An unringed female osprey visited the nest. Ilmar arrived with a fish! The female bit his ankle. Ilmar worked on the nest and mated(?) with the female, but also turned his back on her (signaling perhaps that he is not a threat).

April 24 -A visiting osprey on the nest.

April 25 - A duck, and then a ringed WTE (C550) visited the nest while Ilmar was away. Later in the day, an adult male kestrel landed on the nest.

April 25-26- At 20:00 on the 25th, a new pair of young WTE landed on the nest and were back the next day. Looduskalender article: http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/node/16566

April 27- Ilmar returned to the nest, with fish, but no females have been around.

April 29 - Another unringed osprey visited the nest, as did WTE C550

April 29- Irma (U5) arrived home in the afternoon. Ilmar delivered fish and they mated.

Egg #1- May 09 (DJ, Kaido)
Hatched June 15, 17:54
Fledged August 6
Last seen on nest September 8

Egg #2 - May 13 (DH, Kenno)

The three chicks were ringed on July 17: http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/node/17373
Ülo Väli from Kotkaklubi (Eagle Club) sent the results of the ringing, with comments. Our thanks to him!

Kaido hatched on June 15th –
Ring DJ, wing 248 mm, weight 1310 g, probably male.

The middle one is called Kenno, hatched on June 17th –
Ring DH, wing 259 mm, weight 1460 g, probably female.

The smallest, Kaari, did not hatch until in the evening of June 20th -
Ring DK, wing 205 mm, weight 1310 g, probably female.

Migration (assumed) Dates
August 23 Irma last seen on the nest

Maybe there is something wrong with the microphone - the sound at the nest is not continuous and sounds odd :puzzled:
