I just noticed that the number of posts per page is 20 now instead of 25 as it used to be... :puzzled:
Is this done on purpose?

Well, annectdotally at least, I guess this year's web camera on the Black Stork nest indicates that once a batchelor stork's efforts to attract a mate fail, he has no further use for the nest and abandons it for the breeding season. It will be of interest to see whether either of the males return to the nest as the migration season begins...maybe for the purpose of convincing a mature or young of the year female to fixate on this particular nest for next year's breeding effort. Just a thought...SelbyLowndes

I don't know, what is with BS camera as last days spent in hide (for to trap storks).
Four days visited trap a male BS cought last year, but no success with trapping his mate, up to now.
Today my colleague Ain from Eagle Club had luck to trap adult stork (without of rings), some 20km from camera nest. That could be intruder Toomas! Should check and compare images.

Somehow I guessed that it would be Toomas to get the transmitter. :laugh: Padis seems to be more cautious.

Ah - you have done it, Mutikluti. :2thumbsup: I am just uploading those pics to bucket, too!

E-mail from Urmas

"Dear friends,
I send you two images of stork we caught yesterday. He could be Toomas,but I can't find now the time to compare images with available images of visitor on camera nest...

If you post these in forum, maybe somebody has possibility to make that?

I have taken parts of some of the forum images posted on April 5th, enlarged then cropped them and e-mailed them to Urmas and Mutikluti. It will take a long time for bucket to upload them, so I will post them here later.
