suddenly both were in the nest at 14.22, calling loudly and looking up and around...

then one left and flew around calling in the air. the remaining bird replied from the nest. this went on for quite some time... until the second left, too, at 14.25.
Image

then they called to each other in the air. after a while one landed in the nest and the calling continued.. finally the second left,too, at 14.27

they talked a lot. the latter in the nest arranged twigs, and then they talked more.

finally the one on the branch took off at 15.36. the other followed at 15.37.

April 25th
good morning! :hi:
it's a beautiful sunny morning with a lot of birdsong as usual. a chiffchaff is singing near now. no buzzards so far.

yes macdoum, i wish they'd lay the eggs and stop fussing around. :nod:
i've been thinking that shouldn't they decide yet? how long do they court? - or maybe one of them is too young, like Loupe wrote that the other looks young. then maybe they just "play home", but are unmature to produce eggs.
surely the female must lay eggs when they are ready and can't withold them till it's sunny or Sunday? :mrgreen:

btw: i was up for a while in the small hours and had a :peek: here. it was still dark but birds were singing already. here's a sample. a songthrush is closest and loudest, there's a snipe baa'ing in the air and another ticking on a pole somewhere. a woodcock passes by and says gnrr - gnrr- gnrr as it flies by, and near the end a bittern "blows in a bottle".
