Mutikluti is absolutely right!
We moved hide to other place, further and will continue after some days...

A stork takes a lot of time, but they know their value!

These images are made by automatic trail camera, making photo after movements on place.
Trapping place is located on stream in forest.

Huh!

So much for my "Too many straight lines" theory. That picture tells it! :laugh:

Stright lines theory is up to date, actually!
As you see on images there are avoided stright lines, as much as possible. BSs visit also the fish ponds, where they get familiar with these dangerous straight lines.
In places of traps we use first some fir branch instead of net, etc...
If there were nesting (feeding chicks) storks, they are easier to trap - but storks like Padis, they don't need so much food and can choose the best one pieces.

I am sure I have heard a Black Stork call on the LSE webcam. 11.59.

Remember how we jump up at the sound and our brains tell us "Padis - Donna"
That just happened to me!
I was in another room and thought I had left the webcam on the BS nest, but no, I see Spot alone!

I could be mistaken. Did anyone else hear it?
Oh, wrong part of the forum -

Aha, Padis and Toomas keep together! They don't fight anymore like it was last year.

So great to see pics of "our" Padis!!! :loveshower:

Urmas and Mutikluti, you said the storks would not dare to go to the trap if somebody was in the hide. How do they know that you are there? Do they see you in there? Or what is the reason for their behaviour? And how far the old/new location of the hide is away from the trap?
Thanks! :bow:

I have never been there, I pick up only news about my favourite birds... but I think that you must ask this question from storks.... :rotf: If Urmas knows the answer then is for him easy to catch them.... :D
My logic says that Urmas must be so close to trap that he can to block this trap if stork comes.

All was OK, up to unlucky situation, if one of our team, leaving the hide was noticed by stork...

Distance was about 30m, but now about 70m.
There is no wires between hide and trap - releasing happens via remote control (based on car central lock).

How about best wishes and a wife for Toomas as well? :razz:

If Padis and Toomas fly there together it will be harder to catch them.

Thanks, Leonia.
I had not seen it before. Anything that helps to make flyways safer is worth knowing.

Thank You Urmas and Mutilkuti for your information and pictures of Padis. It was wonderful to see him.

Mutikluti your post and picture of the afternoon sun's rays on the nest.... bring back such lovely memories from last year. Do you remember the countless number of those pictures I took and posted. That beautiful Estonian sunshine!!!

I don't post here often this year, but do read all the posts on the threads and visit the cams a couple of times a week. I made some wonderful friends here.
