The Dutch Werkgroep Grauwe Kiekendief reports that the male of this couple is called Morri. In 2012, a data logger was affixed to him. This enabled researchers to find out about his migration to west Africa; arriving back in Groningen in May this year.
In about two months time, the chicks will fly 5000 kilometer to Africa on their first autumn migration.
Update 16 August 2013: three of the four chicks have fledged. The webcam is gone now.
