Solo, Sue, you're welcome :D

I expected him to come to his nest for a last visit. That's why I kept watching every day. This was a late visit for a non-brooding stork.
But Kaupo and Gaja are an exceptional couple. :innocent:

(GT-little correction)
During the winter season, nest searches were conducted with the help of volunteers, and one of the areas to be searched was the Virkus Forest near Dobele. The good news is that this nest is successful this year and has 4 hatched chicks. Perhaps this year this is the only nest with such a number of chickens, in all the rest are 2-3. Admittedly, 2-3 stork chicks are easier to feed to parents than 4, so time will tell just how successful this nest is at the end of the season.
The bad news - This year is the worst in terms of unproductive nests. This year, 70% of all known nests are unproductive. Unfortunately, the proportion of non-productive nests in the total number of nests has never been higher.
We are grateful to all the supporters who have helped Maris Strazds to survey more than 100 nests so far and also to draw conclusions from what the Black Storks have been up to this year. Unfortunately, it is nothing good, but at least we know it and it is valuable. Let's keep up!
:loveshower: (I hope even the smallest chick is still alive)

Thanks Solo!

It was very interesting to read, but as you said, it's not the best news. :innocent:

Let's hope for better results next year.

Liz great that you were able to catch the final visit from Kaupo on the nest. Thank you for the pics and comments and video! :wave:
Solo thanks for sharing the news, more sadly for the black stork population.
