The first egg has been covered in snow

On Monday, 3 April at 23:06 Leske laid the first egg of the year.  The weather was not kind to the pair, and a few hours later it started to snow, covering the nest with several centimetres of snow. The storks did not protect the egg and it was covered in snow. As we have become accustomed to, the clutching only starts when there are 2-3 eggs in the nest. In recent years, the first egg has been followed by another egg in the nest every two days. In the next few days we will see if the winter weather will change the reproductive schedule of the stork family. It was already clear on Tuesday noon, however, that Leske and Miska will not miss out on mating even in the snow.
