The camera was installed on the Karula lands on April 4th. This nest was discovered only last year. Favourable southerly winds brought the black storks there the next day. Things have developed at lightning speed. The forum members made a quick round of name-giving: the female is called Kati and the male, Karl.

Early on Tuesday morning, at a quarter to six, the first egg was in the nest. Light was scarce, so a slightly later video is added too.The nest needs trimming and being lived in, as the females activities show. There is a long season ahead, we will have time to introduce the favourites more in detail.

The forum provides an overview of what has happenend in between: LINK
