There are a lot of insects. Is the night light of the box blame ?

Let me check if all are back

A stranger (the Starling?) must have been at the window during feeding time and to me it looks like the chicks are already showing little signs of defending ... or maybe not :puzzled:

I wonder if something has happened to the camera, as we haven't seen the feed in colour for some time now :puzzled:

Also, I wish someone would zoom out the camera. It's getting harder to see all of the chicks as they are so big now and soon they start to leave the next.

Hallo zusammen, :wave:

I am writing here for the first time, but have been looking into the nest for a long time.
I'm actually with the black storks, but there are so many beautiful nest glimpses here on the page.

The little chick has suddenly disappeared and I can no longer see the two eggs. :puzzled:

The little chicks grow so fast, they looked different every day.
It is very nice to make such observations.

What I don't like is that the nesting site is lit for so long or possibly all night.
But the light brings even more bugs and the little chicks and mother or father are extremely annoyed all night.
