Latvia Osprey Nest ~ ESTLAT project ~ 2013

Post by NancyM » March 14th, 2013, 2:08 am

Urmas posted: We decided with Latvian colleagues to start Osprey cam about in mid March and not to miss arriving of those inhabitants of the nest.

This is the second season for this webcam in Latvia, a part of the ESTLAT joint venture between Estonia and Latvia, Eagles Across Borders.

Last year, three young osprey fledged from this nest. Two were ringed but one "escaped" and did not receive a ring. You can read about the 2012 season HERE

2013 seasonal updates

Return - April12
Both Ulla and Uldis returned to the nest and mated more than once on this day.

Three eggs were laid in April, three chicks hatched in May, and three chicks fledged in July.

Chicks were named Melnītis, Pelēcis, and Mazulis by the Latvian forum members.
LK forum members called them Blacky, Grey, and Tiny

Departed on migration August 21

Egg #2 - Pelēcis (Grey) ring #400
Egg laid between April 22-24 (The cam was not online because of low batteries, so we do not know the exact date. On April 24 cam was online again and the second egg was documented for the first time.)
Hatched May 29 (seen early in the morning, 05:17 for certain).
Fledged July 15
Departed on migration August 08

Hey everyone! :wave:

I see the cam is on right now and there's a bunch of sticks so big, they should be called logs!!! :laugh: :loveshower:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

I'm glad you want to help me every time vainamoinen.
Some sounds I remain difficult, especially if they are not standard sounds

According to http://www.weather.ee/voru/ it's still cold in Estonia, especially at night (see the forecast), and Piret is already in Egypt (or maybe Turkey)... Do you think this will have an influence on the breeding season this year?
What do you hear? Nothing but the rain.
