IT'S a long saga!!

13:00 Arrival

13:01 Someone flew from the right and under nest to the left, wasn't visible.

13:04 a dirty? BS arrived from left, she attacked but he defended himself and the nest. I think it was the brown belly lady, she really tried to push him and he gave a nice fight!! :thumbs: .

13:05 He flew away... Escaped ?? Looked for intruder??

13:05 after few seconds we had a guest: Goshawk ? Looked to me like the parents of the Lat nest "Vistu vanags".
It was standing on the parent's bed on the trunk, looking around.

13:07 It left; peace is back...

Abigyl, Solo :wave:

thanks for reporting and pictures.

I was looking at the stream and found the events.
Raptor was a sparrowhawk. For a Goshawk he was a bit small. :unsure:

Abigyl, :hi: a male don't attack a female. But I was also a little unsure whether he was male or female.

Good Morning :hi:
I was thinking about yesterday. Could be these were two females.
Unfortunately, I am not observing well enough this year to clearly see differences. I will have time again next year.
