Info below the stream:
Tiešraidē vērojamā lielā dumpja ligzda atrodas niedrājā Engures ezera vidusdaļā. Šie niedrāji jau izsenis ir zināmi kā dažādu ūdensputnu, tai skaitā - lielo dumpju, dzīvesvieta. Ne velti vairāk kā puse no projekta LIFE COASTLAKE laikā ar raidītājiem aprīkoto dumpju tika noķerti tieši ezera vidusdaļas niedrājā http://birdmap.5dvision.ee/EN/2017/sp...


Šogad (2022.) tiešraidē vērojamā ligzda atrasta 22. aprīlī. Atrašanas brīdī ligzdā bija trīs olas, no kurām viena bija jau vismaz 10 dienas perēta. Kamera pie ligzdas uzstādīta 25. aprīļa pēcpusdienā un laikā starp ligzdas atrašanu un kameras uzstādīšanu ligzdā iedēta vēl viena ola. Tātad, sākot tiešraidi, ligzdā ir četras olas un pēdējā ola ir pavisam svaiga. Tas dod cerību šogad vērot salīdzinoši ilgu ligzdošanas sezonas daļu.


Kameras sistēmu uzstādīja Jānis Rudzītis, Jānis Kviesis, Jānis Bētiņš un Jānis Reihmanis. Kamera uzstādīta Latvijas Dabas fondam sadarbojoties ar Engures ezera dabas fondu, kas zināmā mērā ir tupinājums projekta LIFE COASTLAKE laikā uzsāktajai sadarbībai lielā dumpja aizsardzībā un izpētē. Latvijas Dabas fonds pateicas Engures ezera dabas fonda vadītājam Robertam Šiliņam gan par sniegto atbalstu, gan par iespēju tiešraides nodrošināšanā izmantot Engures ezera dabas fonda inventāru.



GT- Info below the stream:
The nest of the Great Bittern, which can be seen live, is located in a reed in the middle of Lake Engure. These reeds have long been known as the habitat of various waterfowl, including the great bittern. No wonder more than half of the bittern equipped with transmitters during the LIFE COASTLAKE project were caught in the reeds in the middle of the lake.
BTW: https://birdmap.5dvision.ee/EN/2017/spr ... =0&speed=1

This year (2022), the nest was found on April 22. At the time of the nest was found, there were three eggs, one of which had been laid befor at least 10 days. The camera was installed at the nest on the afternoon of April 25, and another egg was laid between finding the nest and installing the camera in the nest. So when you start live, there are four eggs in the nest and the last egg is completely fresh. This gives hope to watch a relatively long part of the nesting season this year.

The camera system was installed by Jānis Rudzītis, Jānis Kviesis, Jānis Bētiņš and Jānis Reihmanis. The camera was installed by the Latvian Fund for Nature in co-operation with the Lake Engure Nature Fund, which is to some extent a continuation of the co-operation in the protection and research of the Great Bittern initiated during the LIFE COASTLAKE project. The Latvian Fund for Nature thanks Roberts Šiliņš, the head of the Lake Engure Nature Fund, both for the support provided and for the opportunity to use the inventory of the Lake Engure Nature Fund to provide live coverage.
