Ouh - what a night :loveshower:

22:34
Leo came flying in close to the traditional nest place, hooted to Lotte (can be heard somewhere in vicinity), changed to 2016 nest place at 22:40. He hooted again and left the place at 22:45, direction traditional nest place. But he stayed out of cam view. Leo and Lotte called to each other and at 22:46:24 on can hear them mating again :loveshower:

First there is Leo´s staccato *hu-hu-hu-hu-hu* and then the high pitched squeaking sounds of copulation call again.




22:46 (mating)

Leo was at the 2017 nest place from 18:15 to 18:37


After he left there, he flew over to the 2016 nest place



He continuously ignores the traditional nest bowl :rolleyes:

Cam operator checked possible nest places several times today, focus on 2016 and 2017 nest place.

Looks a bit like no one there takes seriously in account that they would chose the traditional nest place :rolleyes:

Yesterday (Monday) I didn´t hear or see our owls.

I saw him also, but the nests were not visited. Maybe Leo found another place again?
He is so creative :wink:

I found this YT channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvJ2na ... LBA/videos ) with owl voices. Eagle owl is very well recorded, but I do not agree with all the descriptions, for example No 6 should be " Owlets begging for food" and No 5 " Female calling for prey" What do you think?

To some descriptions I can agree, but others are not quite like we have already heard in similar situations here at this cam ....

I suppose the recordings are also edited and/or "filtered" with some software ...

I think I saw one of our Eagle owls making some fly-bys along the ledge and close to the opposite ridge - and his/her appearance caused some protest among other birds (buzzard? magpie?)
