There is a new camera in Latvia shown the breeding of a Eurasian bittern or great bittern (Botaurus stellaris) at Lake Engure


New Season 2016:

There is no longer a JWstream and no Pontu archive this year!

The camera can be watched by a Youtube link:

The link changed on May 23:

Picture and video archive ftp://ftp.ldf.lv/kameras/2016/lielais_dumpis/
ftp://ftp.ldf.lv/kameras/2016/

It seems to be a new nest site at Tukums district, Pure parish. It was found on 11th May 2016 by ornithologists Lauberga Arthur and John Betinsh. It already contained five eggs. Incubations starts right away so hatching of chicks can be expected at intervals of 2-3 days after about 25 or 26 days after laying the egg. A normal clutch of Bittern consists of 3-7 eggs.

The discussion 2016 starts here: viewtopic.php?p=468301#p468301

(The old links are no longer valid and working)

Over 20 bird species on the first day of Bittern Cam. Not bad.

Because of its rarity and special nature I think it is deserving an own topic. I already had searched for it.


I'll be looking into this in the evening, being at work now.

Thank you @all for the nice answers about the location etc., special to Grieta for the map and the link, seems to be a very beautiful area and really worth an own topic!)

The Bittern had three eggs on the 24th of April. After that the fourth egg was laid. Laying with intervals of 2-3 days. Breeding starts with the first egg and incubation time is 25-26 days.
If my maths are correct, the first young must not hatch later than tomorrow. (first egg 18-20 April + 26 days = 16 May at the latest)

I haven't seen that and she doesn't act like it. This morning she left the nest alone for almost 30 minutes.

Thank You very much for bittern camera. All Latvian and Estonian cameras are very good, but this... I never could even dream about opportunity to observe this so great, so interesting bird. This camera gives us a chance to get more knowledge about bitterns. Greetings and great thanks from watchers of Lithuania!

It was surprise also for me. But this is a bird with very concealed lifestyle, so unexpected moments could be rather much.
