DAILY UPDATE Loch Garten nest ~ Saturday, 14 July 2018

  • Can't keep up.

    The chipping doesn't sound particularly like EJ :-/

  • He touched down, both flew, EJ's back, still got her fish, has flown, he's back on dead tree...

    (EDIT - This comment refers to a conglomeration of events and it seems they've got conflated.)

  • She's* joined him on dead tree but not intimately ;)  Still got her fish.

    *Guessing it's her, I can't see very well from here.

    (EDIT - This comment refers to a conglomeration of events and it seems they've got conflated.)

  • EJ on nest mantling.

  • Movie continuing from last vid, up until EJ flies off on nestcam:

    I have to take a chore/meal-break now.  Will do the subsequent comings 'n goings later.

    Editing in just a few snaps:

  • Blog

  • EJ reclaims the nest but has to leave for aerial chases... etc etc until she returns to Love Tree with her fish:

    The unringed female:

    Still a threat from somewhere...

    But it went away :)

    And I see I've got the wrong snap in here, dang, so deleted it.  Never mind - she was at peace in her tree, still with her fish I believe!

  • Lovely to see Cromarty. Aways good when they return. Must look up his history. I see some info on Sue's ringing data. I vaguely recall Roy writing about him too. I think his sat tag failed.

  • Korky
    Lovely to see Cromarty.

    MARY has a very soft spot for him too, Korky :)

    I've had people here !!!  Am relieved to see EJ still on the nest when I got back to my laptop, but when my head was down I heard a chirp and she'd gone... and we went onto nestcam to find her, now the PTZ is on the nest and she's pottering.

  • Good afternoon all, I am in Nethy Bridge, passed the road end to LG! Well what activity I have missed while travelling down. That's our girl, kept on going through all that intruding, with fish in tallons! No one or anything messes with or upsets our EJ. Great photos, thanks all. Good to see Cromarty coming back, but hope he keeps moving on, or do we want her to him to take over and be EJ's new man?

  • Korky
    I think his sat tag failed.

    In her blog Lorna says "Notice the satellite tracker on his back: this no longer works but helps us to identify that it is indeed Cromarty".

  • EJ has flown.

    Editing in snaps - the episode is not worth a video.

    .

    She's back in the Love Tree.

  • Cam's down.  I'm refreshing madly of course.

  • OK, back up.

  • Cam is going down repeatedly :(
