I've checked a few times but I think the nest has been so well made, the 'bowl' of the nest is hiding the egg!

I donít like the new webcam!
Is there a way you can get rid of all the blurb at the bottom? The storks are up very close and personal but thatís all I can see. I canít see the nest at all!
I also miss the view of the lake and the comings and goings in the village!

Debz - exactly what I am thinking! I like to see people and other happenings in the foreground. The camera is too close up - as is the Lindheim one. But guess I'm grateful for seeing it anyway And there seems to be a swarm of flies round the nest at moment!

If you hover over the picture there are two icons on the bottom right, one of them is for full screen, one for picture-in-picture. The full screen works for me, the picture-in-picture seems to stop occasionally. But in both instances they are blurb-free

I think the view was changed sometime late last year, as there was a camera malfunction.

Also, for some more info and some webcam screenshots, here is a (German) blog about the stork nest from the LBV (State Association for Bird and Nature Conservation) - https://forum.lbv.de/t/webcam-storch...bach-2024/7162

From the first blog entry, the storks are named Philemon and Baucis.

"The male Philemon wears a ring on the top of his right leg, the female Baucis is not ringed." (Translation via Google)

There are two eggs in Roettenbach now!

I happened to see the first one by chance.

The blog in the earlier post has a screenshot from today with the two eggs - https://forum.lbv.de/t/webcam-storch...h-2024/7162/39

Just had a brief peek and could make out the two eggs, as there was a bit of nest maintenance going on, but only because the stork nudged the eggs very carefully with the beak and they were visible for a moment. Otherwise the level of straw is quite high now and it's almost impossible to see the eggs.

Finally caught a glimpse! I watched for far too long but saw the top of 2 eggs. Not sure if it was my wishful thinking but possibly another one there?
Certainly they are a very attentive pair and the next is getting very deep!
Nothing at Hochstadt or Lindheim that I could see.

I've had the same problem with Hochstadt and at Rottenbach, when I get on I can't see anything because of the bowl of the nest and then it's not available in the evening.

Just caught feeding time in Roettenbach. More difficult to see the little ones this year, with the straw being piled higher, but there was certainly at least 4 heads bobbing up in the fight for food. The other forum has a picture of 5 stork babies in the Roettenbach nest.
