Osprey       Kalakotkas     Pandion haliaetus


Yesterday evening the female laid the first egg into the nest.

This osprey nest has not been used for  breeding for some years. We  may have to do with a wholly new osprey pair and with a female laying eggs for the first time.

In the video we see the osprey pair together. The smaller male flies up from the nest and when he arrives back  with a pine branch we also see for a moment the egg of the young female with its multicoloured shell.
