:hi: to all!
Karl II had better wind than Eedi, Nurme and Timmu. This week they all had to fly with North-Eastern wind and only today the wind blows from the South.

Yes, maybe, Asteria :hi:

I have read that on Karl II’s topic too.
It was announced on the YouTube chat, apparently.
I’m not on the chat.

But there hasn’t been a new birdmap update so far. (20:30 Estonian time)
The last shown data on birdmap are still: yesterday 14.10 in the morning, location: north of Vilnius in Lithuania

So how can someone on the YouTube chat (who was it?) know that Eedi came finally home today? :puzzled:
And more specifically, how can someone know where exactly Eedi flew at a certain time?
And also know the location of Karl II’s nest?
Only Urmas - and probably also a few other Kotkaklubi members - have access to Eedi’s transmitter data, as far as I know.

Eedi’s exact locations within Karula National Park will not be shown publicly.

There has been a birdmap update.

Eedi reached Estonia. :thumbs:

Nurme is at the border between Lithuania and Latvia.

More information tomorrow. It’s too late for me now.
:offtobed: :wave:

Good morning :wave:
Great, Eedi has gotten home too!

Little wish: It would be nice to see, for example, a small camera photo of the home nests (without location) of Eedi, Nurme and Timmu ... would that be possible at all?

So the latest locations of Timmu and Eedi are not shown on the map now, because they reached their nest places?

We didn’t have a recent birdmap update so far

Most probably Nurme is in Estonia too by now.
He may have reached his nest yesterday or maybe even the day before yesterday.

:wave:

Thanks again for the announcement, Jo!
That’s very interesting!
