Robert was first seen with an injured foot on 1st February. we have no knowledge of what happened, just like we don't know what happened to Durbe.
we noticed Robert's injury here:

9:52 a little bird came to have a look at the camera. a siskin maybe? or maybe rather a yellowhammer (female)?

7:09 Female is digging in the nest ground
7:10:36 female is a bit violent
7:11 Female on the left branch. ...
the eagle on the nest was limping so it was Robert so the female was the Bride. they made some nestwork together, mainly the female dug in the nest bottom.

15:34 eagle calls from very far... barely audible, a long song. two voices i think. and a buzzard calls much closer.


before the long eagle song there were some other voices from a much shorter distance. krak-krak, ... krak-krak. an eagle's voice this on, too? a young eagle's voice? :puzzled:
i think we heard calls like this in the winter feeding ground.
the voices are at about 7 s and 17 s from the beginning of the clip.


15:39 more eagle calls from a shorter distance than the first song. two voices again i think.

18:20-22 A young giant eagle in the nest. Rather spotty costume it had.
(Don't know why but it seemed so big.)

Edit: spotty under its wings.

i'll make a Pontu clip of its visit tomorrow and post it here.
