Are the eggs early this year due to the weather conditions or is it just because Easter comes earlier!

The last two years the first egg/s in Roettenbach were spotted on either 17/03 or 18/03, so the storks are keeping to their schedule

The last 4 years there were 3 fully-fledged young storks every year and since 1980 there were 96 young storks altogether from this particular nest.

The LBV (state association for bird protection) in Bavaria have a brilliant map for the different stork nests - https://www.lbv.de/naturschutz/arten...storchenkarte/

The website works well with Google translate, though I don't think the map details do.
Plenty of stork info on the site.

Also, the Roettenbach website has a list of FAQs that work with Google translate (during daylight hours, as their camera feed is turned off overnight due to data protection rules)

Difficult to make out, as the stork only did a brief tidy-up, before settling down again on top of the eggs, but I think there is 3 eggs in Roettenbach now.

I was watching too. It's very hard to tell as the nest is doing its job. I wish the camera was set slightly higher to get a true 'bird's eye view'.

Definitely at least 3 at Rottenbach! They are a good attentive pair sharing the load!

just in case anyone needs another bird nest webcam, i've been following for a few years a peregrine falcon one at Nottingham university and at last the first egg has been laid - very latethis year - so hopefully more will follow.

I hope the link is ok and not against the forum rules - sorry if it is
