Hello dear users, I followed this forum the whole season and never wrote anything. But now I have to ask if anybody knows something about little Aru because today he disappered from birdmap
dodhart, Following Karls' Families - in this topic you can follow all news about ARU, ORU and the last year storklet Karula, current page viewtopic.php?f=65&t=945&start=6180

18 ha forest area, usually 35 pairs, this year 28 nesting pairs:
(GT) However, the cool, rainy weather in May did not favor hatching chicks, and several nestlings were ruined by then, and in a number of nests, due to long-term food shortages, additional chicks, or even complete nestlings, were destroyed.
result: only 14 young BS from 16 nests source: http://www.turistamagazin.hu/fekete-eve ... wVojONPP6M
Urmas wrote not about nest (if Dab-nest: 3 storklet fledged) - from the Puszcza Notecka (also streamed nest) also 3 storklet fledged
Summary of black stork nest web camera 2019:
we haven't infos about the reason - more probably lack of food
official info about bad situation in Gemenc:
Urmas wrote about all Polish black storks, but probably he didn't know or forgot about the goshawk. In Dab 3 of 4 storklets fledged, the nest in Puszcza Notecka was the most successfull, 3 of 3 storklets fledged.
In Gemenc it could be the lack of food but 1. the storklets got at least one feeding every day and 2. it was after the storm that they both were found dead.
