After a long separation the arrival of one's breeding companion is a great joy. Such feelings are a pleasure to share.

When Urmas Sellis has finished his pressing field work he will introduce the nesters and this year’s situation in more detail.

So the stork nest was left to wait for its nesters next year….

As the first of the young black storks Maru left the nest, on August 4th. About the nest life in between we have written in the news articles.

Karula and Päike left on migration on August 15th. Male Karl did not come to the nest later because he noticed the departure of the storklets and he was busy near one of them (Karula), at a watching distance as the transmitter data showed.

The young storks left on migration as usual a little before they were three months old. They did not go on discovery trips together and they left from the nest at different times and in different directions. And how do we know?

As in every year the visits of the female stork becomes rarer in July until we one day notice that she has not been visiting the nest at all for several days – that is how she sets out on migration.

The last time that we saw the third storklet was on the same day that they became two and a half months old. There have been occasions in earlier years when a young bird that has been out straying around has returned again to the nest after four days …

Near the nest flying exercises go on in daytime too

Female Kati has not been seen since the beginning of August but so quietly the departure of the black stork females proceeds.

Hunger is what sets the young birds in action because the couple of feedings in a day by male Karl is no longer enough for youths grown big. They have to start acting and occupying themselves as their instincts tell them.
