The young bird Aru (letter A on the leg number) has injured the underside of its wing on its test flights but the slight tear seems to be healing. It is the bird that spends most of its time in the nest. The other young bird can be seen in early morning

The young birds that have turned two months old are busy and sometimes romp around each according to its own character. The adults have managed the feeding of the young birds successfully. Let us hope that the last month will pass likewise without mishaps.

Adult bird and young stork in evening light

I read in Looduskalender that you are invited to send your stories from nature around your home.
I moved to live in Kärpla village, in a farmhouse that had been standing empty for more than six years. A couple of weeks later a white stork moved into the farm yard. While the house stood empty the stork nest was also empty for all the years. My question is: why do the white storks need someone to live in the house or near the nest?
