Three months have passed in a flash. In our web camera nest a handsome juvenile has grown up. There is still action near the nest but this period too will end in the next few days.

Let us see what will happen that the camera lens will no longer show.

The greater spotted eagle female should set out on her migration in the second half of September. The male and the juvenile move together and they may be seen even a month later. For the juvenile a serious course of getting along with independent life has started, as yet still directed by both adults.
