Live osprey nest in Napiwodzko-Ramucka Forest

Live ospreys – Napiwodzko-Ramucka Forest

Since 2012, the Eagle Conservation Committee has been popularizing knowledge about their biology and protection thanks to internet cameras at bird nests. Online transmission from the osprey's nest is one of the many activities carried out as part of the completed in June 2021. of the LIFE15 NAT PL000819 project “Conservation of the Osprey Pandion haliaetus protection in selected SPA Natura 2000 areas in Poland” (DGLP / KOO / NFOŚiGW). Transmission in the 2022 season is possible thanks to close cooperation with foresters from the Jedwabno Forest District. Despite many adversities at the beginning of the year: a broken tree with an LTE antenna, a skewed socket, technical problems with the broadcasting station — the transmission was restored.

The nest is located on an artificial platform built as part of the LIFE project in 2018 on a 30-meter-high pine tree in north-eastern Poland. The camera was installed in 2020 in mid-March before the arrival of the birds. The ospreys in 2019-2021 were successful, 3, 1 and 2 chicks flew out of the nest, respectively. The female Jedwabna received the transmitter in 2020. She spent the winter of 2019/2020 in Burkina Faso, Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Contact with her transmitter broke off in the fall of 2020. while wandering over the Sahara desert, where she probably died. In the spring of 2021. the male mated with a 5-year-old female Latvian, who laid the first egg after only 5 days.
