Butterbur flowering

 

Butterbur        Harilik katkujuur        Petasites hybridus

 

At the same time as the colt’s-foot the eye-catching but rarely occurring butterbur flowers.

Where can we find the butterbur in nature?
The butterbur prefers a fertile fresh habitat with clayey soil.. The banks of water bodies, and also the verges of ditches and ponds suit, but the plant has also reached the seashore. Suitable habitats may also be found in humid parts of old parks.

By today all owl chicks have hatched.

 

A brief survey: on March 30 we could see the first egg in the nest. The next eggs Klaara laid on April 2 and 5.

 

When exactly one month had passed, or on April 30, a chick hatched from the first egg, the second on May 1, and the last on May 3.

Female Suvi trusts leaving the nest only when male Sulev is near it

By today the eagle chick is a week old – it hatched as you may remember on April 24.

It is nice to watch the development. Sulev has cared for the food  store and in the last few days Suvi too has contributed. The chick is fed fish caught earlier – interesting whether that is drier for tearing off more suitable pieces.
