DAILY UPDATE ~ Loch Garten nest ~ Monday, 06 August 2018

  • Just when we were mourning the loss of our matriarch to the southern climes already, a young male shows up on the perch. Maybe he was GJ, he certainly looks familiar. Lorna B caught him on the cam and Sheila then captured! Otherwise we would have seen no one---he didn't stay there long. No EJ though...
    (Limpy's capture color-edited by me)

  • Good morning/night, CC, thanks so much yet again :-*

    Look at the difference, you're so clever!

    Limpy's improved by you:

    Mine improved by me:

    I uninstalled that Photoshop, BTW - it wasn't legit.

  • OH NO! Really? :-/

    I was ready to get into it with you to figure out how to video edit. The color correction was a PS automatic correction...

    And now I must, as usual, tuck myself in... xxx to all

  • DAYCAM 04:37hr:

    Settled into day:

  • Good Morning Scylla if you are still around, and to all who follow

    Thanks CC for the lovely start off once more. 

    Scylla I watched your video from yesterday's visit, all I can say I thought it was an adult, with a very white under wing. 

    Have checked AO and no updates as yet, I somehow think we will have seen the last of any mention of EJ by Gordon this season.  Sigh!    

    The nest as it is now looking very empty and unattended to. :-( 

  • Good morning MC and Mary. Certainly looking like she's gone.

  • Morning Mike

    Yes I think that too sadly.....  

  • Good morning, MARY and MIKE :) 

    Yes, Mary, probably no more mentions of the beautiful and famous EJ this season.  I'm visualising her flying over the Channel now - probably nowhere near reality, but I like to "see" her in the sky with the sea below.

  • So glad you are still here Scylla and that I haven't missed you as you head to the land of nod. 

    Yes I cannot stop thinking about EJ, "where is she now" etc too, the end of every season leaves me with a heavy heart, these last few days of not seeing her on camera and not knowing if she has gone or not has been hard.   She is a legend is our EJ, she gives so much joy to so many people, she doesn't know the half of it. :-) 

  • Good morning MC.

  • Good Morning SCYLLA MARY MIKE  I was here a while ago but got Access Denied Signed out and sign in again so hope all is well

    The nest looks like a hurricane has hit it

    Doubly sad as we think of the incredible EJ flying south and remembering dear Odin tidying the nest before they left

  • Mike

    Good morning MC.

    Sorry you had to greet me twice, MIKE :-*

    Once upon a time we used to be told that EJ had soared off on her way south, witnessed by the VC - that hasn't happened for a long time.
