Today I mused a bit about possible hatching dates, but came to no conclusion - as Lotte preferred this new place and laying eggs in secret :D

As far as I see it in cam view there is still no food in stock, so we probably still have to wait for important things to happen ...

Maybe Stefan Brücher will give a guess about hatchings in the next news .....

New statement in the EGE diary today:

"Schneller Brüter
Montag, 25. April 2016

Liebe Uhufreundinnen und –freunde,
gestern (Sonntag) benahm sich Lotte sehr unruhig, sie ruckelte ständig hin und her.

Bis Montagmorgen sind – füher als erwartet – offenbar bereits zwei Küken geschlüpft. Jetzt beginnen, wenn auch mit eingeschränkten Sichtverhältnissen, die spannendsten Beobachtungstage.

Leider ist uns noch kein gutes Bild der Küken gelungen. Wir sind mit der Kamera jetzt so dicht wie möglich dran und hoffen Ihnen bald etwas zeigen zu können.

"

Now then there are two owlets hatched till Monday-morning! :bounce: :bounce:

Surprise - surprise! :loveshower:

Our "secret" Lotte gave us the first peeks on her owlets :laugh:

Today in the morning at 05:44 she went out and hatching was already in progress


Now, at 12:58, she was preening some of her chest feathers and for a short moment a white fluff ball is visible

When cam operator tried to focus it, it went more blurry than sharp ...

One or two? Difficult question... hmmm.
I agree with you, Bea. Your last video shows movements of one owlet. But I'm not sure.

Riitta :hi:

Same here with me .... at first sight I feared it was an owlet :faint:

But having a closer look it is too big and has too many feathers *phew*
