HISTORY:

2012: The web cam started. The male is called Madis, he has a silver colored leg band on his right foot. He was banded in Lappeenranta, Finland in 2007.

The female is called Piret. She laid 3 eggs is 2012 and all the chicks were banded. The chicks got names Uno, Elo and Nori in Looduskalender Forum http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/index.php
All three chicks fledged successfully. In the end of summer 2012 Piret was captured by Kotkaklubi http://www.kotkas.ee/eagle-club. She was also banded and she got a satellite tracking device on her back.

2013: Madis arrived first, he accepted a new female which got name Oxana. Piret´s tracking device showed no signals and it was uncertain if she was alive.
Later Piret showed up and dispute started between the females, first it seemed that Oxana “won” the nest. She laid an egg on 1st May. Piret disappeared for a few days, but returned and the dispute started again. Eventually Oxana disappeared, she got a few wounds on her legs and Piret claimed the nest again.

Madis incubated Oxana´s egg, Piret didn´t “adopt” the egg, but she wasn´t seen destroying the egg either. The egg didn´t make it, it disappeared (went broken/ was buried to the nest)

Matings happened also between Madis and Piret, but Piret didn´t lay any eggs. There were no chicks in 2013.

2014: Madis and Piret were both seen in April. But they didn´t stay at tne nest. The nest remained empty all summer. Some visitor Ospreys were seen.

2015: New Ospreys are seen. There is a new banded young female with visible numbers "29". She was banded in Estonia (about 70 km from this nest) by Kotkaklubi in 2012. Looduskalender named the birds on 1st May: Mai (female) and Mikk (male).

The male (Mikk) and the female (Mai).
