The PIP on egg 3 was at that time already bigger. So, it could be that this one was the PIP on egg 4. ...
thank you, balistar :headroll: :2thumbsup:

I will pay attention to it.

my fingers are crossed for you!

Sweet and so quick. :loveshower:

All the best for the little ones - and the big ones.
Mom is tirelessly busy making sure the sweeties have a nice nest! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
The excellent bird concerts on this nest are always wonderful.

Many thanks to everyone who lets us share in this miracle.

5:55 she covers eggs and chicks. EGG is loud. But I did not see an hole till now!
I didn't particularly look for it either. I was on the PC for too long yesterday. My eye is extremely angry.

I hope that Ogris comes soon with small fishes!

video and pics from the great feeding later :bow:

I have to go for a half hour

8:37 Dad is feeding his storklets :D
Image

8:43 a little beak is peeking out of egg

I record everything. After breakfast I'm at the Baltic Sea for a few hours. I want to go to the renaturation area. Today the wind isn't that strong, so 60 km on a bike without a motor is no problem, but it takes time.
