Hi Ferenz & Carolyn
I was watching this nest for a few minutes last night and saw a pair mating on the dead tree :woohoo: Will be very interesting if the 2 females get along and share the nest with Ivo ;)

At 19:29 there was the first successful mating! It finally worked out. She raised her tail and it went just fine.
Afterwards she shook her tail, all just as it should be.

Glad to see Ivo is figuring things out, maybe he is confused because there are two? Just a joke......

Apr. 22 - I recorded this short video last night; I thought it was strange behaviour by Ivo. He brings fish to the nest, looks around, then appears to be mantling the fish when a female arrives. He then appears to be watching and following something nearby. He lifts up and lands on top of the female to mate. The mating looked successful but I found it odd that Ivo stayed on the females back for a few seconds before flying off. The female flew off a few seconds later.

A few s'caps I snipped from the video.

Estonia 2

Great encounter between current female, Ivo & banded intruder
13:02 - CEST: First the current unringed female comes over from the dead tree, then Ivo lands on the nest, making his submissive gestures (because of this I think the stranger was a female) and then a third osprey with metal ring on right leg lands. Current unringed female beats it off the nest.

I was watching the nest tonight (my time) when Ivo landed in the nest with a big stick. He looked around, moved a small stick, then hopped up to the cam support. The unbanded female landed in the nest, looked around and did some nestorating. Ivo jumped down onto her back, copulation took place, then Ivo flew off. The female moved a few sticks & pieces of straw then flew off.

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSbiUdewUXs&t=215s

I recorded another video of Ivo bringing nesting material to the nest a few times then trying out the nest.

Congrats to Ivo & his new lady on their 1st egg :woohoo: I was watching and recording yesterday and it must have been just before she laid the egg. Ivo brought some nesting material and was busy moving sticks around and testing the nest. I love watching him lying down and pushing the nesting material from underneath him with his feet :D I'm looking forward to the female getting a name :thumlft:
