Good evening :hi:

18:25 One osprey in the nest
18:43 Seems to become a bit nervous
18:47 Still on the eggs, but arranges nest material within its reach
18:53 The bird in the nest is the male – it gets up, the ring is visible. The female returns to the nest
18:55 He leaves, she sits down
18:56 – 19:01 She rolls the eggs, sits down, gets up, sits down
19:03 The female is sleepy now
19:05 I closed the camera


18:53 Female returns to the nest

:wave:
thanks for info about doings in nest, and photos & video :2thumbsup:

photo from morning with rain, Piret at 9.52

and from this evening at 21.06 Madis came with part of a fish (which? perhaps eel?) for Piret which she toke outside the nest to eat
Image

I have not time for watching constantly, but just now and then have a shortly look.
But it seems that the Ospreys have other habits than the WTEs. Their shifts in nestduties do not seem to be that regularly - but the last one I saw today was Piret just as other evenings since the first egg arrived, just like Linda.

Good morning.

8:45 One bird on the eggs, very stormy weather.
There´s a big piece of bark next to the osprey in the nest
8:48 The eagle gets up, calls, sits down
8:49 It gets up, rearranges something in the nest bowl, sits down
8:5o The bird in the nest is the male, the ring is visible; female returns
(maybe with a cluster of this grey lichen in her talon – or it was at the edge of the nest where she landed)
8:51 Male leaves, female sits down
8:55 He returns with another big piece of bark. Obviously quite difficult to handle in the strong wind. The female tries to do something with it
8:57 The female leaves, and now the male has got a problem. A part of the bark covers the eggs, so he can´t sit down. He´s working very hard to put it on a place where it doesn´t disturb, but that seems to be nearly impossible. At last he managed to transport it at the edge of the nest, but the wind brought it back... A hard "fight" until 9:02
9:02 Landing sounds from the camera. The male stopped struggling with the bark and started to arrange the hay quite forcefully
9:04 He rolles the eggs in the nest bowl
9:05 He sits down
9:07 I closed the cam

8:57 The female decided to leave the nest for a while... and now the male osprey had a problem…

I saw at YouTube that scyllabub has recorded the whole scene, so I hope it´s OK to post the video here. Maybe scyllabub is the new Lk member skylla? However, welcome skylla, and if it is your video, thank you! :2thumbsup:

12:35 One bird in the nest, looking around attentively
12:43 It gets up for a moment – it´s the male. Stormy weather
12:49 Gets up/sits down, the same at 12:50
12:52 The male spreads it wings over the nest, the storm is strong
12:55 He calls
12:56 He calls and leaves. Raven calls in the background.
I think osprey and raven are visible in the sky in video 1 below, a few seconds after he left the nest
12:57 Osprey returns, if I am not wrong it´s the male (see video 2)
13:00 Still the same bird in the nest, I closed the cam

Video 1: Stormy weather, male eagle leaves the nest, eagle and raven in the sky?


Video 2: Osprey returns to the nest

Last matings were yesterday, not heard or seen any more, so maybe only 1 egg more will come, or it will stay at 2.
We'll see.
