Let's hope the owners of the nest - Linda and Sulev - will breed this year, like some previous seasons!
But nobody knows... That's a bit strange that no eagles visible, though the weather is fine...

Ame, I am sorry to say that we have no information about Pontu, this year I think I heard that EE net needs the server space for more important matters.
Now what can be more important than Linda and Sulev?

http://pontu.eenet.ee/kotkas/2011-03-10 ... -15-57.jpg

*http://pontu.eenet.ee/kotkas/2011-03-10 ... -15-57.jpg

Yes, there are intermittent crackling noises, but it is windy there. The image is constant.
