Unfortunately not. And Karl has fed only twice a day for 2 days. This is too little. Last night there were only a few fish
Today we have only one feeding. I hope he finds some food for the evening.

this year is really sad for all of us. i always think urmas must help. is there a possibility that he picks up the storklets if they would starve otherwise?

I think, without Kathi Karl cannot bring enough food for the chicks.
Will the storklets be saved or have they - like the owls - to die, because "it's nature"?

Felicitas :hi: welcome to the forum :gathering:

Karl II should be able to feed two chicks. At the moment there is a problem with the food supply. But he is able to feed 2 chicks alone for a few weeks. If there were four chicks in the nest, it would be a problem.
I hope that the disturbances (in the food habitat?) or elsewhere cease. Then he can bring enough food again.

The female usually stays away from the nest at the end of the season.It is a bit early for that.

I think it's a little too early to panic.
Please let's remain optimistic.
In recent years there have always been days with very little food, too.
A random example: in 2017 there were three storklets on the nest and I read:
30.06.2017 two deliveries
01.07.2017 two deliveries
02.07.2017 two deliveries

Everything turned out well.

We have also seen that Kati sometimes did not show up for 1 or 2 days, but never 3 days in a row, if I remember well.
This worries me too. :unsure:

Fortunately, Karl II is an exceptionally competent stork, so I keep hoping that he will manage to feed his storklets, until they are ready to start their first migration.

Last year it was Karl I.. another Karl. He stayed away and Urmas was able to tell us Karl was fine because he had a transmitter.

I claim that it works well because 2 parents are able to raise four or six chicks. So Karl II will be able to raise these two.
These chicks are already very tall, the time until they can fly is not far away.
It does not matter how many times he comes. The amount of food is important.

We are a bit appalled now, because until recently we saw chicks that could barely move when they have eaten. The change came too fast. Suddenly no more Kati and now the few feedings

If Karl II finds enough food, the chicks will grow up and fledge normally.
I'm spoiled by the Latvian and Polish storks. There was plenty of food :laugh:

Urmas hopes to ring both young ones, and tag (with transmitter) one of the chicks, on Wednesday. This depends entirely on whether a helper is available to assist at that time. The Kotkaklubi volunteers are all having a busy time so we must not be too upset if the plans for Wednesday are not fulfilled.

About Kati - we know that she has always been a stay-away mother! Perhaps we shall see her again.
Last year she began migration on August 1st.

Thank you very much for the information, Jo!
Unfortunately I go on a short journey on Wednesday. :faint:
I hope, videos of all important things will be made and of course many beautiful pictures. :D :2thumbsup:

Will you let us know when you know the approximate time they will arrive?

At nest it sounds as if raindrops are falling. The storklets lie side by side; they are not wet.

A picture from earlier.

17:28 In beautiful sunshine a storklet preened the siblings head.
I always admire how caring the siblings are with each other. :-)

Michi, it will be very unusual if I am given that information! All we can do is to listen carefully and watch the behaviour of the storklets.
