DAILY UPDATE ~ Loch Garten nest ~ Tuesday, 12 June 2018

  • Possibly, Newman has shown up to give George a run for his money yesterday. Let the best man male win. Who knows, EJ may have recovered enough to consider this a break in the regular routine. I am happy that even though she is of "advanced age", she seems to still reserve some opinion about her options, or...perhaps I am projecting! Should be an interesting day today, post-season or not post-season.

    And for those like me who find attendance sporadic, here is A Tribute to Odin, begun by MaryGK at the end of the month. {tears} © RSPB - Loch Garten and Carnyx Wild

  • Honestly, CC, anyone would think that you were being paid to start our DUs (referring to your apology at the end of yesterday).  We're very lucky that you make time for us :-*

    Re the ID of yesterday's male - I don't think we can tell without seeing a lot more, as the head and other markings can vary with the weather.  I know that Trying pronounced the underwing to be wrong for GJ, and if I were more organised I'd fish out comparison snaps... 

    EJ's behaviour was "different", as it has been on a few occasions recently - she's been so much more animated.

    Yes :)

    Am so tired I've had to postpone my grocery delivery, off I go to Mary's Odin thread to see updates, then to sleep, g'night all.

  • G'night scylla and all. :-*

    Fair warning, I will late home tomorrow, so the new DU is up for grabs! :-)

  • Thanks for new DU CC

    I have to get some sleep for now, but will try to post pics to prove my thinking later today.

  • Good Morning everyone coming later

    ENS again I hope one morning I get a nice surprise and see dear EJ on the nest Meanwhile I'll have to try and look in during the day

  • Hi Patily.

  • Aviemore Ospreys fb page says EJ fished twice and dropped both this morning. It doesn’t say if she caight another or not. I can’t add photos as the rich formatting buttons don’t work properly on my phone :( sorry

  • Sorry Moffer, your post wasn’t there when I started typing.

  • HiMOFFER and 25mac What a shame for EJ I hope there's nothing wrong that she dropped fish twice Hope she caught another and is now contentedly eating it  somewhere nearby

  • Good morning  09.23 staff are checking the area for EJ.

  • TPZ is searching for EJ. No luck

  • Good morning CC, Scylla, Trying, patily, Mike, Moffer, 25mac and followers,

    Thanks for the update from the lochan. I hope she has caught a fish and decides to eat it on one of the visible perches.

    I haven't checked the rest of the footage for action but, judging by the nest, nothing has been moved. It is exactly as it was at night.

    The PTZ camera searching as I type.

  • They haven't found her.  View is is the long side view from treecam.

  • Hi Sheila, you were not there when I was typing :)
