The nest is located in southern Estonia, Tartumaa, near a fish farm. Natural rivers and ponds are also nearby.
The resident male Ivo hatched and in 2013, Joosep Tuvi circled him in the 50 km NNE nest in Jõgeva County.
Female Irma was ringed as an adult bird, we know nothing about her ringing date.
This year, the female Irma did not return to her nest. Ivo thus nestled with a new female.
