16:02 Again a mating. And again she flew away in the middle. :puzzled:

The abandoned Karl II

Karl II followed her.

16:04 He returned, singing.

16:05 He left again. Probably he is searching for her to get her back to the nest.

Michi :hi:

In LK article about storks it was said that some females may deliberately not return to their old nests. So maybe Kati is among them. As she is unringed it is hard to say who is this female. But both she and Kati have brownish feathers on the belly(maybe because of diving for frogs).

Can it be that this female is already somewhere in a nest? :puzzled: The way it is dirty almost looks like it's on your stomach.
... and no, judging by eyes, that's not our Kati

It is only in Estonian and in Russian:
https://www.looduskalender.ee/n/index.php/node/4453
https://www.looduskalender.ee/n/ru/node/4453
There is written about the 1-st time breeding females that they don't return to Estonia, nothing like what you wrote: some females may deliberately not return to their old nests
GT from the LK article:
Thus, the young females before breeding disappear, but may stay elsewhere to live (the same text is in Russian version)

Sova :hi:

Mating between these two seems to be a disaster. They mated at 17:00. After few seconds she turned to the right, with Karl II on her back, and flew away. :slap:

Karl II followed her immediately. Few seconds later she showed up and landed on a branch that is directly at/behind the nest. Then Karl II showed up from the same direction, she flew away and Karl II landed at nest. Seconds later she came back to Karl II and the nest.

17:00:22 The female lands on the branch behind the nest.

17:00:24 Karl II showed up, see yellow arrow ...
Image

17:00:26 ... and she flies away.
