So female Tiiu laid the egg 

 

Greater spotted eagle      Suur-konnakotkas         Clanga clanga

 

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.

Yesterday the first one, today already three heron chicks hatched

Grey heron          Hallhaigur       Ardea cinerea

 

A baby boom is starting in the heron colony – just imagine the hatching of the chicks of a some hundred nesting pairs at roughly the same time !

For information – the heron pairs keep together only during one nesting period.
