A stork couple has settled in the camera-equipped nest on top of the electricity distribution network Sadales tīkls (ST) power support pole. On March 28 one of the birds had settled in the nest, but on the evening of March 31,  the other joined, ST said.

Several mating episodes have already occurred and eggs may soon be expected.

During the 2022 mating season, the first egg was laid on April 18, followed by several more, and the couple managed to raise four young birds.

According to Māra Janaus, a member of the Ornithology Laboratory at the University of Latvia, this year the first egg could be expected earlier.

She said: "It is impossible to predict anything about whether there are four eggs to be expected this year. [..] It's hard to predict how many eggs there will be and if any at all, but everything is possible."

You can follow the nest events on Sadales tīkls website.
