Is the clutch at the "Internet Storks" of five eggs complete?

On Thursday the 14th of April the fifth egg was seen. Is "Cico" and "Luna's" clutch at the Vetschau Internet storks complete?

Even with the nest camera, it is difficult to detect the exact number of eggs. The nest hollow is very deep and only during periods the storks alternate or turn over the eggs a momentary glimpse at the clutch is possible.

At intervals of two days the female stork laid the eggs. Already after the second egg, both storks began breeding. The breeding period from start to hatching lasts 32 days. At the beginning of May, presumably on the eighth, the "NATURE"-Adventure Day" at the White Stork Information Centre, the first stork chick is expected. Following this, another chick should hatch. Not always the breeding phase will pass without complications. Battles for the eyrie are possible, weather related inconveniences or injuries to the parent storks can lead to the loss of the clutch. To breed both storks are necessary, taking regular turns in the process. One of the storks watches constantly over the clutch. Rotating the eggs to ensure proper development of the chicks. The storks bring into the nest new material to keep the hollow warm and softly upholstered. In addition branches and twigs are added to the nest's edge.

Persons who wish to observe the storks during the breeding period and inform themselves about the necessary techniques for the protection of storks as well as the numerous other nature protection themes may do so at the Internet website or at the White Stork Information Centre of the NABU Regional Association Calau e.V. in Vetschau, Spree Forest. The exhibit is open from Tuesdays to Sundays and holidays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
