At the moment there is still no public pontu video and picture archive - but it will probably and hopefully change soon, as there is now stork activity on the nest

20:40 The tawny owl is back.
20:55 The stork can be heard again (movements and voices). And so is the owl who is apparently approaching.
21:03 The stork gave a warning (I think) and the owl moved a bit farther.
21:09 Another tawny owl is joining in. It can be heard that the stork gets upset.

It is an interesting soundtrack but I´m feeling sorry for the birds being so upset...

Me too, Trine, for both species. :unsure:

The female Tawny Owl sounds very agitated. She is sometimes closer, sometimes farther away. Poor thing. :unsure:

Most likely is it so. The time window is suitable.

21:50 The female Tawny Owl is still calling, nonstop about now more than 1 1/2 hours.
It would be very sad if she has to give up her clutch. :unsure:

Birdfriend, I'm sorry, I have to correct the time. I came in confusion with nest time and my time at home. The trouble began at about 19:15 nest time. This is almost 3 hours ago. :-(
Tawny Owl still calls ...

22:09 Suddenly a loud beak clacking of the stork!

22:10 Again ...

Rustling of feathers, loud breathing, sighing of the stork. There's no peace. :unsure:

22:09 Loud noises from the stork. I was really terrified. And then the tawny owl again. :blush:
Edit: Thank you, Michi, so is it still much longer, not good. :bow:

Beside of all circumstances in the evening I want to say thank you, Liz, for the videos of the Storks arrival! :2thumbsup:
It is wonderful to see the first Black Stork back at home and his first activities. It is amazing to see that he loses no time to restore the nest. :D

I imploringly hope, the situation with the Tawny Owl become calm. At the moment it seems that she has stopped her calling.
