Lesser Spotted Eagles - Latvijas Dabas fonds ligzda eglē 2019

Post by Felis silvestris » April 6th, 2019, 4:58 pm

Lesser Spotted Eagle (Clanga pomarina) nest in Zemgalē, Latvia

This nest is located on the western edge of Zemgale. It was found in 2018 when eagles nested successfully and one young bird left the nest. However, as the researchers discovered, it did not experience its first flight to the wintering sites - early 2019, the remains of an adult young bird were found on the ground about 100 meters from the nest. The nest is built in a spruce at a height of 17 meters, in a stable fork of three branches. It is a typical small Lesser Spotted Eagle nest - about half of all LSE nests in Latvia are built in the spruce trees, and a large part of them are built in such places where branches have formed a fork. Judging by the size of the nest and the condition of the material, the nest is at least five years old. Jānis Ķuze and Jānis Rudzītis placed the camera system at this nest. Thanks for the support of Janis Kažotnieks and Renate Kviese! The live camera operation at the LSE nest is provided by the Latvian Fund for Nature within the framework of the project "Providing Lesser Spotted Eagle Protection in Latvia" (LIFE AQPOM), which is financially supported by the European Commission LIFE + program and co-financed by the Latvian Environmental Protection Fund Administration.

Liz, your post is in the wrong forum. This is eglē forum, your pictures are of the bērzā camera.
Understandable, it is quite confusing so many new LSE cameras... :nod:
