Some of the things Stefan Brücher was takling about was not to understand, he was too far away from the microphone in the nest cave. But when he was closer, one could hear him better :)

He was asked whether owls would mind it that he has been up there, he answered that something like this hasn´t been observed until now. Out of breeding time it is no problem, but the closer to breeding start, the more they can be influenced by disturbances. At least one week before breeding starts there should be no more disturbance.
There have been even foxes on the ledge, but about a week before breeding season started, owls chased them away. It is kind of normal, that sometimes also other animals come close to the nestbowl, but the owls know what to do then.

During breeding, disturbances of humans would lead to abandonment of the breed. Most people don´t know exact location of the nest, people who are living close to the ledge most likely know that there is an owl´s nest "somewhere".
Danger caused by climbers is not sooo big, as the rock consists of slate and breaks easily, they don´t like this material to climb.

The lady asked whether Stefan Brücher is already looking forward to the next breeding season and he answered "Of course!" :laugh: And that he is curious how Leo will behave and what he has learned in the meantime, and whether he will try again to feed the eggs with a mouse :laugh:

After this Stefan Brücher went away from the nest microphone and I could not understand any longer what he said.

Yes, it was Lotte for an early morning visit :loveshower:

Lotte has no rings on her legs and her characteristic calls are hoarse, Leo is not calling like this.
She stayed from 05:27 to 06:23, didn´t walk around, was always on the same position. Every now and then she preened a bit, watched surrounding all the time.

:loveshower:

Leo came in at 17:07 and Lotte followed :headroll:

Video and sound are not synchronous! Don´t know whether it was a glitch at my recordings or at cam site.
But they act so nice that I post the clip despite of that :D
