Yeah, well in early mornings there seems to be fresh sounds but then it chokes in some odd way..
There are new summer birds from Africa coming in like the Pied Flycatcher that sings loud near the nest now, it arrived 2 days ago and also Cuckoo, Wood Warbler was heard yesterday, right on schedule. Guess you can trust the bird calender rather well 8-)
2 chicks were heard yesterday morning.

Tomorrow on Saturday it's 2-weeks birthday party for the younger one :mrgreen:

Hello everyone! :hi:
When will it be possible for bird watchers to go to the nest and check the camera without fear that the parents will leave the сhicks? Only when the сhicks will be ringed or before? :puzzled:

I wouldn't mind if they wait until ringing.
2-cluthes are not common and maybe one extra early visit would disturb the peace in the nest so that the younger one gets killed, don't know :whistling:

On May 10, two chicks ate. By two voices, it seems that there are no strong fights.
New observation format :rolleyes: -

Urmas hasn't written for a long time. Are they still planning to go to the nest?

By the way, this morning a chick has hatched in the Latvian GE nest :nod:

We'll go to the nest for ringing in a couple of weeks. At the beginning of June probably. Hopefully can fix the camera then, but no guaratees.

Thank you Triin. Let's hope you succeed! Good luck :thumbs:
It must be a big disappointment for you both both that the camera broke down on such a critical moment!

Today I listened to voices for a long time. I heard only the voice of one chick.
On bad frames, there was also one white spot (before there were two)

Around 8:50 I can hear a chick and some rustling. Maybe it is fed.
The sound is very faint, I had to use headphones with the volume turned to max.

Most puters have weak amplifiers, plug it in to something else.
