Isaslind Karl is still wandering in Turkey.

The male black stork is the first to arrive at the nesting site in Karula.

Currently, Karl is migrating in Turkey, having completed a 4600 km journey since the beginning of the autumn migration. His migration will now need to be monitored with greater attention, as he will soon pass through the western part of Ukraine after crossing Romania.

The smaller can no longer stand up.

It all started last night, when the youngest hatchling, who probably hatched later, could not want to get up as his/her siblings. A certain sluggishness in behavior could be noticed a little earlier, but it could also be blamed on the heat.

It's sad to see the torment of a bird, but unfortunately things happen so in wild nature and we can't interfere.

In March, before installing the web camera in the nest, we waited impatiently for the start of male bird Karl’s migration. Karl did have a tracking device but the lack of GSM cover in southern Sudan kept us in the dark during four months, from mid-November 2018 when Karl reached his wintering site. However, on March 16 during the spring migration Karl’s locations were registered and all seemed to be in order. We had nearly two weeks of time to install the camera at the nest. The nest could be seen in the web camera from March 24 onwards.
