16:33 - Female answering calls are as well hoarse calls as *uuhuuuuu* too. Some sound like more hissing. A mix of all :laugh:

Image

At 16:34 he hopped forward and flew out of view.

Ring right leg - for my opinion it was Heinzl

16:26 - male begins to call

16:39 - Female is anwering - and same minute male is flying in :laugh:

No zoom until now, cam is focussed quite far away from nest corner .... ahh - but now it zoomes a bit closer

Image

At 16:43 he takes off again - in the same moment when cam changes to night light

It looks as if he wore a ring on the right leg, I suppose it was Heinzl

He took off at 16:47, there was zoom only moments before take-off

I think I saw the ring on right leg and that it was Heinzl.

A new article from Stefan Brücher:

http://webcam.pixtura.de/SWR_UHU/artikel_de.php?id=113

Fremdbesuche...

Liebe Uhufreunde,

obwohl der Brutbeginn erst in ungefähr drei Monaten stattfinden wird können wir regelmäßig Uhus am Nistplatz beobachten.
Wie schon im vorherigen Tagebucheintrag erwähnt wagen sich manchmal auch fremde, weibliche Uhus an Lottes Brutplatz. Es gab mindestens zwei weitere "Fremdbesuche" und nun konnten wir eindeutig auch ein nicht diesjähriges Weibchen erkennen. Die Stimme des Vogels war schon vollständig ausgeprägt, sie setzte sich einfach in die Brutnische und scharrte als wollte sie am nächsten Tag Eier legen. Am 8.12. konnten wir sehen wie Lotte diese Konkurrentin unsanft aus dem Nest beförderte.

Lotte ist gefordert sich zu behaupten und ihre Fitness wird dabei immer wieder auf die Probe gestellt. Ein traditioneller Brutplatz in einer hohen Felswand ist unter Uhus sehr begehrt und wird bei steigendem innerartlichen Konkurrenzdruck nur von den kräftigen Uhus erfolgreich verteidigt. Erkrankt ein Uhu ernsthaft wird er schnell ersetzt, und nur wirklich kräftige Tiere können die besten Brutplätze für sich beanspruchen. Die Verdrängungsversuche von "Eindringlingen" können wir durch die Cam erstmals hautnah beobachten und dokumentieren.

Aber auch weniger spektakuläres ist zu sehen: Mäuse, Gartenschläfer und sogar eine Eidechse noch im Dezember!

Sollte ein deutlicher Wintereinbruch stattfinden rechnen wir mit deutlich weniger Uhuaktivität. Ab Ende Januar müsste dann die Frühjahresbalz beginnen. Ob sich die Uhus an diesen "Fahrplan" halten?


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Stefan Brücher

He took off at 08:12

I didn´t catch him flying in, when I opened the cam he was right there. But I suppose that he landed only moments before.
