It's nice that a couple appeared, maybe this year the nest won't be empty. What kind of bird is that? Buzzards?

By the way, German members here - did you watch "Terra X" yesterday evening in ZDF?
If not, try to find it (Mediathek) - there was a long contribution on WTE, Kieling went up a WTE nest for ringing, shows what food remains were there and also talks about the lead problem!
(another chapter is on Golden Eagles!)

They are really cute, the nest is so big, they could sit next to each other and still have place! :mrgreen:
But I don't know if the idea of using the nest is so good, as we know ... :unsure:

I think it will be ok for the Buzzards to use this nest. Considering what happened with Maisy Mallard, the Buzzards was one of the threats we were afraid of then...it was a Crow who ate the eggs in the end, wasn`t it? Can a Crow be a threath to the Buzzards? I think it would be very intersting to see the daily life of a Buzzards family because we have a couple in the neighbourhood, but we only see and hear them when they are out flying..

no it wasn't a crow. it was a strange WTE with dark eyes but a plumage of an adult who ate the eggs of Maisy. it was May 4th in the evening. i think that every eagle in about 50 km radius know this nest. :unsure:
ahaa: Felis found a picture already.

i think there's a songthrush singing out there. ... and now a buzzard meowing.

Oh no :shock: :help: (I always remember wrong, I have to stop :blush: ) Yes, the Buzzards looks so big alone in the air, but compared to the eagles they look so small. But do you think a WTE (or others) will attack the Buzzards if they are staying in the nest, lying on eggs? ( just curious)

... i wouldn't be surprised, but on the other hand WTEs take the easiest food so at least they'd scare the incubating mommy- or pappa-buzzard out and then eat the eggs.

at 17.57 the buzzard came after there had been some meowing around the nest.


they spent some time looking around.... the first left at 18.03 and the other 18.04


at 18.05 one buzzard brought a little twig, stayed a while and left at 18.06.

I have hopes that the Buzzards will stay here, but also worries :unsure:
