Estonian Osprey Nest (Marko & Miina) 2022

Post by Bea »

Nest is located in South Estonia, Võrumaa.
A military base is close, so it is not unusal to hear motor sounds from trucks and other vehicles, sometimes even shots.

A fish farm, as well as a river, is not far, so good hunting conditions for Ospreys.

-----

Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) reach body heights of 50-66 cm, and wingspans of 1,27 - 1,74 m. Females are bigger than males.

- Winglength ♂ 448 bis 495 mm ♀ 470 bis 518 mm
- Weight ♂ 1,12 bis 1,74 kg ♀ 1,21 bis 2,05 kg

Usually two or three eggs are laid and incubated 36-41 days.
Young Ospreys fledge after 50-54 days.

We ask members to post no more than three pictures plus one video per posting

Too many or too big pictures/videos will be edited/deleted by admins/mods.

Please add camera time to your posts/pictures/observations! Thank you!

Hello Osprey fans :hi:

We are at the start of the new season and I want to try something new, a kind of addition to the first and/or second page.

I will document the Main Events 2022 as usual and like in previous years, but I´d like to offer you observers to reserve a post on the first or second page (just like you can get it when the cams start) to give you the possibility to document more and additional behaviours/events or things like that, which are not directly "Main Events", but remarkable though.

Maybe you observe an unexpected, sudden and not explainable behaviour, we had something like this some years ago, when two female osprets began to show some strong aggression to the female or when the female at the Latvian nest began to cast pellets repeatedly and more than it can be expected - just as two examples about what I am thinking about.

Such events are interesting, but often "sink" among all other posts, but when we can have a link to them on the first page/s, we can find them back easily.

The maximum amount for links in one post is limited to 20 (I hope I remember this right) and you can edit your post at any time, we have no time limit for editing own posts here in LK.

I hope that I could explain my intention good and understandable enough, if not - please let me know and I hope that some of you are interested to participate in this "experiment".

Let´s hope that our osprey cams will start soon!

Thanks in advance!
