The chick in Roettenbach is huge by now. First flight lessons will arrive soon, I'd say.

There's a quote on the German forum about the Roettenbach nest -
https://forum.lbv.de/t/webcam-storch...h-2024/7162/85

Quote:
Herbert, the owner of the Storchen brewery, told me that the nest is often very compacted and therefore the water stands in it during heavy rainfall. So today it was enough for a mud bath. It may be that this was also the reason for the high mortality rate of the stork chicks this year.

Really sad for the Lindheim pair - she is still sitting on the eggs but it really doesnt look as if they will hatch now - but she still sits there in hope.

What a wee shame. Nature is so cruel sometimes.

Roettenbach stork has now taken flight after plenty of stretching the wings and take off exercises. Empty nest his morning, but they do pop back during the day.

That's good news! But the stork on the Lindheim nest is still sitting on the eggs and occasionally I see her standing and just staring at the - quite sad really that she doesnt realise that, after all this time, they will not hatch.

It is quite sad, but their instinct is probably telling them to go on.

Roettenbach junior is just back in the nest. He is the one with the not quite so orange legs.
