Germany: Triplets in the Gottorf Castle nest

It´s the second set of triplets for this breeding pair in northern Germany, Schleswig-Holstein. The first set was born in 2016, but the youngest eaglet died. The 2018 chicks are three weeks old now, and local eagle watchers hope the raptors will survive.
