The night towards Tuesday was still spent in the nest, in early morning some necessary flights were made and from the video we can see that the departure from the nest was quite decisive.

Wind in your wings and adventures without dangers!

In some years the male has visited the nest after the departure of the young – as if summarising the happenings of the summer.

After the rain on Monday the male came to feed the last storklet left in the nest. The siblings have already started an independent life. The female left already a few weeks ago quietly heading for the winter quarters – such is the mode of life of all nesting birds of this species, which we have seen over the years in the web camera.

The storklets practise flying already for a couple of days. Good that they find their way back to the nest which shows that the young birds manage orienteering.

Video: Badger's year

In the sixth minute (6.20) pig-like snorts are audible in the video. The badger has a voice! Although the badgers in many of Looduskalender’s videos are quite silent they actually are able to produce quite varying sounds. In the video here we hear sounds of romping.
The video from the trail camera was assembled by  Peeter Anijalg.
