Estonian Osprey Nest (Mati & ?) 2018

Post by Bea » March 25th, 2018, 1:32 pm

Welcome to the seventh season on this nest!

Introduction on LK main page in English: https://www.looduskalender.ee/n/en/node/2493

In 2017 Mati, the male osprey (metal ring right ankle), waited in vain for a return of Mai (ringed, 29, on left ankle, metal ring on right ankle), his mate in 2016.
A new female appeared, with Estonian ring LF (LF ring left ankle, metal ring right ankle, ringed in 2015), but she turned out to be too young for successful breeding and she refused Matis´ attemps for mating.
Nevertheless she stayed around the nest with Mati for months, got fish from him and seemed to be happy with this situation.

Will she return and become his mate in 2018?

Nest is located in South Estonia, Võrumaa.
A military base is close, so it is not unusal to hear motor sounds from trucks and other vehicles, sometimes even shots.

A fish farm, as well as a river, is not far, so good hunting conditions for Ospreys.

Ospreys (Pandion heliaetus) reach body heights of 50-66 cm, and wingspans of 1,27 - 1,74 m. Females are bigger than males.

- Winglength ♂ 448 bis 495 mm ♀ 470 bis 518 mm
- Weight ♂ 1,12 bis 1,74 kg ♀ 1,21 bis 2,05 kg

Usually two or three eggs are laid and incubated 36-41 days.
Young Ospreys fledge after 50-54 days.

Hello to all osprey fans :hi:

I prepared the topic for 2018 already "behind the curtains", to be ready for the season :wink:

Like probably most of you I already champ at the bit .... :whistling:

Hopefully our osprey cams will be online soon and then the new topic will be opened, now it is still locked.

Until this happens the 2017 topics will stay open
viewtopic.php?f=56&t=891

Stay tuned! :wave:

Good morning osprey lovers :wave:
The tension is increasing by minutes, isn't it?
Great admiration and big thanks to Urmas and his team to be ready at exactly the right time.
I wonder how we could manage without the beautiful nests some time ago :mrgreen:
