it was full moon on Jan 9th and as it was a cloudless night people were able to capture some clear moonlight pictures of the forest. (starting from here: viewtopic.php?p=122698#p122698)

Jan 10th
there were no new bird species seen on this day so i'll only list the ones that were photographed.
  • great tit at 6.41, 9.33, 13.12, and 15.05
    buzzard 11.35
    jay 12.45
Jan 11th
the same applies for this day: no new visitors were seen. a great tit visited at 9.03.
later it began to rain hard and the feeding ground turned to a lake. viewtopic.php?p=122903#p122903

a buzzard spent more time eating fish in the rain, getting more and more soaked. the buzzard pictures begin here: viewtopic.php?p=122911#p122911
before taking ooff the buzzard said "Good bye!". :mrgreen:

Jan 12th, Jan 13th and Jan 14th
went by without any special events.

Jan 15th
the day began with a visit by the blond dog at 8.01. (it looked to me like the same dog as on the 8th)
Lake Nova had frozen during the night.
Fleur wrote:8:01 A dog comes to eat something on the right
it was still a bit dark so some people thought that there was also a deer in this video. opinions were numerous both for and against this hypothesis. i think the question remained open in the end. :D

food was brought at 9.44.

at about 10.15 an eagle call was heard and quite soon the first eagle of the season was also seen on a pine top: an adult eagle.

this eagle flew off at 11.03 without landing or showing its ankles. Urmas commented this bird right away.

at 15.17 an adult eagle (with still some dark in the tip of the tail) with rings landed on the ground.
Rionn wrote:The eagle came down :loveshower: , took a fish and flew away

it soon returned and it's rings were photographed. on the right leg the Estonian colours blue on top of white, and on the left a little unclear A4 on white on top of 79 on red. white on red means year 2008.

the ringed eagle got company: an unringed eagle landed, too, and began to eat fish together with the ringed bird.

Today´s bird with white-red ring no A479 (..79 was clearly seen) was ringed in 2008 in Vormsi island, about 30 km SW from the feeding ground.
(they walked about so easily close to each other so that i assume it might have been an engaged couple.)

Jan 16th
Fireblade captured the first eagle on a tree top at 9.06. it was far but it seemed to have a (at least mostly) white tail and (at least mostly) yellow beak.

somewhat later an adult was sitting on a branch much closer to the camera.

at 14.29 an adult eagle was sitting on the tree top. unfortunately it was far and rather well hidden.

later at 15.13 a juvenile eagle was spotted on another treetop.
ame wrote:eagle #1 is sitting on a treetop behind Long Island. i think this one has a perfectly white tip of the tail. ....
and there's another eagle on the treetop on the Grove! this one has some dark colour on its beak so this is still juvenile.

this juvenile left at 15.22.

the total count of eagles on Jan 16th was one adult and one juvenile eagle.

at 11.27 an eagle was hiding in a tree top again but spotted by venegor (and Mutikluti of course! :D )

at 14.24 eagle calls were heard from rather far. at 14.48 a young unringed eagle landed on the ground and was accompanied by a second young eagle which took off right away and flew to the Grove and landed in a pine therre. it was soon followed by the first youngster. in the end there were

and one on the ground!
there were altogether 5 eagles in the camera view at the same time: one young bird on the ground and two young birds and two adults in the pine tree. in the tree from left to right: young, adult, young and the other adult on the rightmost tip of the tree. the adults sang a song there.

at 15.03 two young eagles with no rings on the ground.
ame wrote:Image
at 15.38 both youngsters in a tree. the other has streaks in the chest and the other has a buzzard-like or horseshoe-shaped white ring on its chest.
ame wrote:Image
one young eagle sat in a pine till at least 16.12. it was rather dimm then already. the others had left earlier, but when that was not seen.

the total sum of eagles on Jan 18th was at least 5 eagles: three young eagles and two adults. no rings were seen, but all of them weren't close enough to see their ankles.

Jan 19th

an eagle call was heard at 8.40 and at 8.54 a ringless adult eagle landed on the ground. it was soon followed by a young eagle who didn't have rings either. the adult left when the youngster arrived.

this young eagle has a ring pattern on the chest, which is very similar to the pattern that the other young eagle had on the previous day. maybe these were from the same group.

the adult had apparently flown to a treetop.

later at 9.25 maybe another adult or the same? - it was snowing hard!
Fleur wrote:Image
the camera was off for a while but back on again after 10 clock. the snowing had seized.

here on Fleurs videos there were three eagles: an adult with no rings, a sub-adult with some yellow on the beak and a young eagle with all dark beak.
viewtopic.php?p=123967#p123967

near 11.25 the picture was gone again but the picture returned at about 12.10. at 12.34 the Punker with the horseshoe was back on the ground.
