I don't know what it is. Never heard before. It was she or something very close to the cam.

Here is my preliminary list of observed birds on this cam. Several others I like to hear again before adding. The noise of rain and wind in the reeds and the singing of Great Reedwarbler often makes it difficult to hear distant birds clearly.
Bittern not only can be heard booming in the background, but often also calling while flying overhead.
By day usual birds in the foreground are Great Reed Warbler and his little brother Eurasian Reedwarbler. Most obvious around first light. Often close are also Water Rail and Moorhen. At some greater distance (on land) Willow Warbler is almost always singing.
In the dark you usually can hear Spotted Crake and in the distance Savi's Warbler.

Around 20:08 cam time I thought I saw a broken egg and a hatching chick, but is was too short to be sure and of course it is too early for it. But at 20:25 she removed a broken egg, so there must be a second young. In 23 hours instead of the expected 2-3 days.

But I don't understand. Laying is with 2-3 days interval. Breeding starts with the first egg. I would expect than that the hatching also is with intervals of 2-3 days.

Thank you, Fleur. The broken egg is clear but not the chick because number one is interfering.

this is what I found...There are laid 2 to 3 eggs that hatch after 29 days. The young leave after 6 to 7 weeks the nest. :blush:

Up to 7 eggs. Fledging after 15-20 days.
That were Mute Swans you heard. Now Savi's Warbler in the distant background.
