16:58 Feeding by Kati. :D
Many small and bigger lampreys.
One storklet (that one in pool-position) could eat well, I think. It sat with it's back towards the cam, therefore I can only assume it has eaten. The other (behind the storklet and an egg) had to struggle a lot with one quite big lamprey. It was a hard fight for the little one. I couldn't see if it has swallowed the lamprey when Kati settled again down on them.
Surely there was also smaller food available, but obviously it couldn't reach it. :rolleyes:

I'm sorry that I can't post pictures, but I'm still at work.

So that's the reason. I have been waiting for your pictures. Yours, Anne's and Baska's pictures are always especially beautiful.
Then I have to wait till tomorrow. :laugh:

Anyway your pics are always very good. :thumbs:

That's something she should not do. We need a clear view of the eggs and the little ones :bow: :mrgreen:

Now Karl II is in the nest .. Maybe they only hatch when dad is there :shake:
I was hoping to see four in a nest on one day . That would be great and unique.

18:14:09 Karl II removes some moss from the nest bowl.
Does he need more space for the huge fish he brought? :mrgreen:
The chicks are begging.

18:14:27 "Our dad isn't very fast, is he?"
Image

18:15:09 There was food visible in his throat, but nothing came out. Later...

Karl II eats lampreys back

This is amazing tactics how storks feed their chicks :shock: simply keeping food in "storage"

:hi:
Yes! These lampreys were too big for such small chicks, but they were soft enough to peck out nice pieces.
I think both chicks ate well. Especially the chick in the best position.

Then Karl II turned both, the eggs and the chicks in a not so delicate way. :mrgreen:
One egg seems to have a very big hole. It could hatch very soon, I think.
I didn't see a hole in the 4th egg.

18:59:05 The big lampreys
Image

19:02:46 "Dad, what are you doing!"
Image

19:03:01 The big hole.

Thanks a lot for all your pics, balistar! :thumbs:

from earlier, 19:39, i think i saw also a hole at egg 4:

19:39:43 here Karl II turns the egg 4, which is close to his foot, on the left of the egg it looks like a hole, one storklet (K2?) lays on the left side, the other (K1?) is on the right,
egg3 lays in front a bit out of view
Image

19:39:45 now Karl II turns the egg3, (egg4 is now on the right of our view)
Image

19:39:45 we get a glimpse of the storklet inside the egg3
