17.46 Piret in nest, calling for a while, then taking some powernaps
18.11 Piret flew off and half a minut later Madis arrived
18.56 Piret returned – Madis left in a hurry
19.51 Piret flew off very quickly and with few sharp calls
19.58 one landed upstairs, but flew after about a minut, again with few shap calls – something bothering must be around somewhere, although there is no strange voises or noise to hear
20.04 again one landed upstairs
20.07 Piret back in nest on eggs
20.30 Madis came with a small fish for Piret, she left

The Pontu archive has still images taken at one minute intervals (the picture you quoted is a screencap that I took.)

The url is changed each day and each minute. To look at any particular picture, make sure the url shows the date and time you want to see - the date must be changed in two places and the time is at the very end.

Here is the link to a picture from May 27 (2012-05-27) at 05:51:

Anyway, Piret was very happy with it. Did you hear the sounds she made when taking it over?

Monday, May 28

Mr Pontu Archive was no help this morning - nothing interesting to see before the time I opened the cam at 5:20.

It turns out that Piret was on the nest, because
Madis arrived at 5:26

The male brought this fish, as jopie wrote, at 10:21. Piret took it and left the nest with it one minute later. Madis sat down.

Looks like it is only a half of fish, not just headless, so Madis first eats it himself.
