11:32 Ivo landed with fresh fish
Iiris took the fish, gave an alarm and flew away with the fish to eat on the dead tree. About ten minutes later she returned on the nest with what was left of the fish. UM and UP both tried to grab the fish and guess who was the lucky one? :mrgreen: Of course UM, who started to eat.

She was next to kids, stepping on their heads :mrgreen: , while 2 others were in the sky.

Hello everybody :hi:

I think I have to send a reminder about picture size for LK forum - in Looduskalender forum rules members are asked to post their pictures in a max. size of 800 x 600 pixels and not more than 3 pictures per post.
viewtopic.php?p=71#p71

Most of the picture hosters allow preselection for picture size, before upload.

Please note - when you make a crop or enlargement of a picture, this size preselection may not work at some photo hosters. One has to resize the edited pictures to the wanted size before upload, with a picture editing program like "Paint" or similar. "Paint" is on every Window computer.

Thank you all in advance! :wave:

Ospret UM fledges


Short before his take-off UM pooped over the nest rim :laugh:

He took off like a pro - very sporting with a dive!

And his sisters looked not very amused about his actions in the air :rotf:

Iiris followed him, this guy needs a guard for his first flight, definitely :mrgreen:
