December 20th

Hello everyone :wave:

Waba didn't report yesterday, and we didn't get any news today either.
Maybe s/he is on a field trip, or maybe s/he changed areas.

Let’s hope for some updates soon. :thumbs:

Hi everybody! :hi:

Also today our Waba didn't send a signal, it looks as if s/he is on travel.

To all who love the Black Stork family of Karl I and II, the light begins its return to the earth.

Happy New Year 2024!

May our hearts be light, our days be bright, and the year be just right.
May we care for each other, for the earth and for all living beings, since everything relates to everything else.
May there be peace.

:wave: I wish all black stork friends all the best in the New Year 2024.

There are so many questions? Will the Karula nest ever be occupied again? Or will Kaya find another home with a new partner? :shake: Anything can happen. It definitely remains very exciting...

Many greetings to everyone :hi:

I find it hard to believe that the Karula nest might never be occupied again; it’s too desirable a location for other black storks, IMO.

If I recall correctly, a different male black stork began bringing sticks and twigs to this nest before Karl II returned from his migration. Sadly, we won’t be seeing Karl II again, so in theory the nest is “up for grabs” before Kaia returns from her migration (as male black storks typically arrive several weeks before the females so they have enough time to rebuild their nests).

But then again, Jan and Janika’s nest has remained uninhabited since the year (2022?) that Jan mysteriously disappeared and never returned, leaving Janika to struggle with six newborn storklets before she, too, flew the coop… So ultimately, who can say? :???:

Hi Hulbi, hello everybody,

I am also getting a little curious and nervous... Bit I assume it takes about four more weeks until our birds appear on the screen again.

Hi Dogmami,

sadly, yes. He died in Turkey last fall, obviously by electrocution. His remains were found by local volunteers, and the transmitter was rescued.

Hello everyone :wave: , with the beginning of spring I can't help but think of the return of the migrants and, obviously, of "our" dear storks. I don't know what this new season will bring but, I can't wait for them to come back 😊💚

Thank you for the beautiful story about Karl. He is so missed. Hopefully we will have nice moments with our black friends again this season, looking forward to it. When do you think we will see the first ones here? Best wishes from snowy (Northern) Finland. Pirkko

Hello Pirkko :hi:

Usually the first Black Storks arrive already in Estonia around late March/early April, if I am not mistaken. But a lot depends on the weather (rain, snow, wind direction, …). Of course, the weather during their migration north also plays a role...

Hopefully the nest cam will be online soon now, so we can see if any BS is (already) visiting the nest.
