What a wee shame . They all looked to be thriving. I know it's nature, but so sad. It looks like the little one is still there and doing well.

just a bit of info, which you guys probably already have!!

Search for Salisbury Cathedral Peregrine webcam, Bath Catholic Church Peregrine Webcam, Norwich Cathedral Peregrine Webcam, and Derby Peregrine Webcam (I think its the council offices), and you will see four nests in different stages of chick development.

My goodness, how the wee ones have grown! Their marking are beautiful especially noticeable on the Rottenbach chicks as they are slightly older.

For all you birdcam addicts you should be in utopia tonight and for some time to come on BBC Country file at 8.00. At one time on the preview this morning there were at least 8 simultaneous shots. I think it is available on website from 10.00am until 10.00pm.
Happy viewing, I hope the housework does not suffer.

The beaks of the Roettenbach chicks have stretched a lot and their legs are starting to turn orange. Wings get are getting stretched for practice and it can't be long before their first flights take place.

There's been a lot of wing testing lately - and sometimes I think one of them will take off - or tipple over the edge of the nest

Anyone seen stork mum and dad around in Roettenbach? Didn't spot them yesterday or today, whenever I looked.

No - I havent either - I wonder if they are deliberately trying to make their offspring leave the nest! I've seen them (and at Hochstadt) testing their wings and jumping all over the place and each other - but none has had the courage to actually try to fly And the Hochstdat nest doesnt look very comfortable - just like a mud bath

Parent at Rottenbach feeding the bedraggled 'little ones'.
They were looking very busy preening themselves and lots of wing flapping but as soon as parent arrives, they are like little babies waiting for the food!

Left a query with the Roettenbach webcam and got this reply back this morning:
(translated)

"the young storks are as good as fledged. Unfortunately, you cannot see on the screen that the old storks in the immediate vicinity often avoid visiting the nest while standing on the camera. So it is a typical behavior pattern in the late nestling phase."

That makes sense as they seemed to be very attentive parents. Only the other day I saw one of them bringing some fresh nest material and fussing around. The young seemed to be getting bolder trying out their wings.

Those poor things...I've never seen the chicks look so miserable! All nests are sodden mud heaps with all the rai ; the poor birds are just covered in it! Rottenbach particularly bad...

Yes - it's been like that for ages, just no nest maintenance. The Rottenbach one is nearly as bad, and that has looked ok up to now but a big puddle in the middle now. I just feel so sorry for them and will be glad when they fledge
