DAILY UPDATE ~ Loch Garten nest ~ Sunday, 13 May 2018

  • It may be Mother's Day here, but the sentiment is still somber. ~Limpy's morning pic EJ was home with no visitor but GJ for his early morning stopover and then a duck (scylla's vid)! Around 5 pm yesterday afternoon, EJ left the eggs for about an hour and a quarter, during which time the cam was unreliably up and down. Though the eggs were still intact on her return, and it isn't clear where she went and what she did, it marks her willingness to leave the eggs for a long time. In fact, earlier, she did leave for about 20 mins....(scylla's vid). Probably she did not have a fish during her long break, but it does seem she benefited from being away. Will she go fishing by the end of Sunday? Many of us are betting she will. Here she is for the record, nuttin' but buzz... © RSPB - Loch Garten and Carnyx Wild

  • Thank you for the new DU, CC :-*

    I am taking comfort from the fact that EJ seemed quite refreshed yesterday after her wet and motionless night, and am looking forward to her fishing today.

    It seems that GJ did not call in last evening - I'll have a look back, just in case.

  • Many thanks, CC, for your excellent coverage of y'day's events and bringing us up to date.  

    Alison has kindly given her on-the-spot account of what she saw yesterday late afternoon.

  • After closing time last night SHEILA kindly posted some commentary from Alison at LG.  (Gratitude to both!)

  • A bit of precipitation falling, with the sky just beginning to lighten. I hope it will be good weather for fishing today.

  • Currently raining..... and forecast suggesting rain pretty much until mid-afternoon

  • EJ awake and calling out.... but cant hear anything but humm

  • Dawn is braking...cant think we will see much sunrise

    DAYCAM 04-30

  • Thank you, Pandy and Trying, you've saved me posting the light coming up and the info that it's raining.

    ^^^ That didn't post :(


    Now - still raining.

    I'm off to the kitchen for a little while.

    Oh heck it's DAYCAM already!

    DAYCAM 04:29hr:

  • The cam was down when I returned, back up with manual refresh.  EJ appears not to have budged, so I'm assuming we haven't missed anything.

  • No...nothing missed that I noticed...and I haven't lost cam even briefly @ scylla

    Current light  @ 04-56

  • Trying
    I haven't lost cam even briefly

    Thanks :)

    She's lifting her head slightly to look around.

    Dang nuisance, not having sound to alert one to activity.

  • Good morning MC and all.

    Alison's report is just what we needed. Thank you Alison.

  • Good Morning Everybody  Poor EJ, I see, is soaking wet again That's all she needs  What is that terrible buzz?
