11:14 Mating sounds!
11:15 Virsis is calling very loud and flies in the nest. He is shaking his wings. There seems to be an intruder again.
The stranger flies over the nest. Spilve chases him (her) away.
11:23 Virsis flies off.

It's a very busy day today! :faint:

Marfo, I love to see this nest. :nod: I just can't document it reliably. I am happy that this couple finally has its own topic. :thumbs: It was long overdue.
Many have not given up their trust and hope for the nest for a long time! Now we can look forward to the season. So please keep posting and thank you! :2thumbsup:

:hi: Polly, thank you for your reaction!
I noticed that when I am on this forum there are always 0 guests. I was a bit surprised because several people said they wanted a LGE forum for a long time.
But I can understand that the Estonian nest is far more attractive now with two eggs.

I also have to work so I can't post all the time as I have done now. I just wanted to give this forum a good start :nod:
