16:40 Raimis flew away. The wind is so strong, That he has trouble to fly into the direction in which he wanted.
Milda cried in the forest before he left.
Image

he flew a few curves so that it was visible. the eaglets watched him fly much longer.

19:56 Milda started calling kaa-kaa-kaa in the forest.

her voice changed as if she flew around the forest. at times it sounded like she turned her head during a scream. :laugh:
this crying went on for over 3 min. :mrgreen:

Good evening :hi:

Ame, have a question;
Have you ever seen an Eagle Mole, Mouse or Rat bring to the nest?
I ask because I have never seen it until today.

Sova :hi:
i cannot remember seeing any such prey at a WTE's nest. at least i can't remember any such animal being identified. a few days ago Milda brought one such small dark food item that it might have been a water vole (Arvicola amphibius). the meadow is such a wet environment that water voles certainly live there. Milda's prey was, however, impossible to identify it.

20:52 Milda shook her head hard. Riks tried to peck her beak.


21:09 Riks pooped from behind Milda's back.
Image

then he made some WE there. he also showed his head so that i could identify him. (i hope i'm right).

21:39 a woodcock flew by so that it could be seen in the upper left corner against the sky as a black blurry dot. it flew from left to right.
21:42 it flew by and over the nest, again in the top left corner. it sang along its way.
