A sibling has arrived
It was thought that maybe Blue 35 had left but there was this tweet yesterday - Well, after assuming that Mrs Osp had scarpered, we saw five birds on the reserve today, one of which was a female with a blue ring. Maybe she set off but tried to travel by Northern Rail.. - made me smile :)
My friend would appreciate that She has to use that line LOL!
Youngster on the nest, standing on one leg so can't see the ring...and its 2 siblings just arrived but before I could capture one helicoptered off. The original bird also flew to the bush behind the nest One left on the nest but largelly hidden by the FB etc strip
Fish delivery. Two chicks present.
Soon there are three!

Thanks for the pic of three youngsters, Mike, I had looked in quite often in the last couple of days, and only seen two at a time, and was just deciding maybe 7N had left, though rings are often indistinct.

5N having breakfast, watched by ? who is also shouting
When I came back 5N was alone on the nest, still eating but has now flown off with the rather large fish
