So the egg came into the nest

 

Lesser spotted eagle   Väike-konnakotkas     Aquila pomarina    

 

The female has laid the eggs into the nest at extremely long intervals so it might have been supposed that she would be incubating only one egg.

The first egg was in the nest on May 2nd  and the next one  not until May 7th at about four o’clock in the afternoon. Most usually there are two eggs in a lesser spotted eagle nest. Of the hatched chicks almost without exception only one fledges because the weaker chick perishes before it becomes fully fledged.

Greater spotted eagles generally lay two eggs, seldom three.

We saw in the video Tiiu laying the first egg on April 23rd. Today on April 27th too the egg was laid in the evening.

Tõnn brings first spruce twig to nest

In the video we see the visit of the male in the nest just after a quarter to three. Probably Tõnn has inspected the surroundings and acknowledges the nest as his own by bringing the spruce twig.

Actually Tõnn with his transmitter arrived already yesterday. The visit to the nest at a quarter to six lasted for only a second. Was there something in the surroundings that seemed disturbing to him? See the video below.

Nest life has finished

Tõnnipoeg

Tõnnipoeg is three and a half months old and rarely visits the nest if at  all. The nest life period has come to an end.

The parents raised Tõnnipoeg and taught the necessary knowledge for eagle life. Mother Tiiu should set out on migration in the second half of September. Father Tõnn stays to keep an eye on Tõnnipoeg and we can still meet them a month after Tiiu’s migration. With favourable weather they start the migration earlier.

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.
