But their behaviour is much different from what I have seen last summer at the LSE nest. First I thought it is the female in the nest, by the behaviour, but then it must be Madis, obviously. :book:

Their relation seems to be serious.. :nod:

Good luck! These birds are fantastic, strong, acrobats in the air.

Madis was on with a fish for a moment - but he took the fish away with him :slap:
