Stork Webcam

Several of us have followed the Kestrel webcam for the last few years. Kestrel Webcam

There is a different one that may also interest you. There is a Stork webcam on a roof top in Lucerne. There is at least one egg in the nest at present.

It is not as close up as the kestrel webcam, but interesting nevertheless.

I have no idea how many young Storks normally rear, or when the eggs may hatch. I will be watching with interest

Hmmm? The storks were on the roof before the eggs if that helps. I'm not sure if it is the same problem as chickens.

Re: Stork Webcam

I figure that the link is a live feed to regular Swiss TV. Very little action, but nice homegrown feathered talent. "Big Orno Brother" perhaps?

Re: Stork Webcam

The stork is still sat on the eggs. She has been there at least 16 days to my knowledge. Apparently, incubation is about 30-35 days.

I'd rather be a chicken in this case, hight from a chickens exit to the ground is a few centimetres at most.. no harm done to the egg.

Yet if the stork aims wrong, down goes the egg of the roof, splattering on the ground..
