In March, before installing the web camera in the nest, we waited impatiently for the start of male bird Karl’s migration. Karl did have a tracking device but the lack of GSM cover in southern Sudan kept us in the dark during four months, from mid-November 2018 when Karl reached his wintering site. However, on March 16 during the spring migration Karl’s locations were registered and all seemed to be in order. We had nearly two weeks of time to install the camera at the nest. The nest could be seen in the web camera from March 24 onwards.

Male Ivo still feeds young birds Pilvi and Nele who are busy near the nest

Osprey             Kalakotkas           Pandion haliaetus 

 

The young ospreys  are  three months old and they will not be seen around the nest for long any more, Male Ivo still feeds the young birds quite generously and with reason because the independent life of the young birds on migration is not an easy one, particularly when the skills of fishing are still only recently learned, Today the cries of the young birds near the nest are still to be heard.

The female as well as one of the young birds has already gone on migration.
