Nest #3 status and archive, 2014-15

Nov 8, 2014, This female, banded #3943, is 10 years old and rasied her first chicks in 09-10. We have seen her before and she is in the exact same nesting site as last year. We will follow her and her mate as they raise their chicks. Her name is Mathilda and her mate's name is Bob. They were named by Reinhard Max's class in Sudern, Germany.
