After a great afternoon yesterday things were much quieter at Kielder today. It had snowed on the fells overnight and sitting on a snowy nest is probably not top of the osprey wish list. But the female who appeared at home on Nest 1 yesterday afternoon was conspicuous by her absence. The Ranger for that nest commented that immediately on return in previous years there has sometimes been more of a beeline for fish than concentration on nest activity. So patience is necessary!
A couple of visitors had witnessed an osprey skimming the surface of the water for a fish but it didn’t seem to be successful. Lucky them though.
The Nest 2 male Yellow 37 made a lunchtime visit to Nest 1 again. He spent time on the nest and then more on top of the camera pole!
